Last week, the construction fence went up around Womrath Park. It seems like about 3 years since I first heard that a rain garden would become a feature at Womrath. After a few meetings, it started to make sense and along with the murals that will go up this Summer and Fall, Womrath Park will become a real gateway to Frankford. You can read more about the plan in our previous post here.
When it is finished, the big old trees will remain but there will be some new paths and a water feature at the South end. They have taken great pains to do no harm to those big trees by surrounding them with bright orange marker fences to keep the heavy equipment safely away.
