Pop Up Engagement Events
On Saturday July 14, the project team hosted a booth for Dog Days in Drexel Town Square! We had the opportunity to meet hundreds of residents and visitors and learn about what they value today and for the future of Abendschein Park.
You may have also seen us at the Scholastic Summer Reading Road Trip or at the Drexel Town Square Splash Pad where we met with families from across to understand their needs for the park!
You can view the materials from the pop-up by following the link below or check out a few photos from the event.

Park Analysis Diagrams
In addition to working with the public, the project team analyzed existing conditions of Abendschein Park. The team was interested in understanding existing programming, facilities, topography, and water/wetlands. This information helps determine where and which future park amenities are possible for the site.
