Urban Design Tour: Parks and Gardens

Fleisher’s popular series of walking workshops is back with a guided tour of our favorite parks and gardens. Learn about the natural and designed elements that come together to shape a variety of successful green spaces. You’ll also discover innovative storm water management practices that are earning Philadelphia nationwide respect. Along the way, we’ll put on our urban archaeologist hats and explore how our more unusual streetscapes got that way. The tour is approximately 3 miles. All experience levels welcome; cameras encouraged.

The tour will meet in Fleisher’s lobby at 719 Catharine Street.
