The first phase of Carpenter Green Park has begun with a groundbreaking on the northwest corner of 17th and Carpenter streets. Currently, the onsite crew is digging rain gardens and working to install grading, wiring, and plumbing. Naked Philly reported that SOSNA will jumpstart a new fundraising effort for the second phase that is expected to start spring of 2016. So far, the Goldenberg Group has pledged a $50,000 matching grant to the efforts. If interested in making your own donation, you can do so here.
