On Thursday, May 17, 2018, Historic Philadelphia, Inc. (HPI) will host the tenth anniversary of An Evening in Franklin Square presented by Parx Casino. From an initial investment of $6.5 million, Franklin Square has become an urban oasis and family play place, made possible by the involvement of individuals in the surrounding area. It is because of the community’s dedication to the Square that HPI has been able to maintain Franklin Square as a safe green space for people of all ages to enjoy. The transformation has been significant, and with your help, we can continue to host free community events and sustain this treasured Square as an urban oasis for children and families, neighbors and out-of-town travelers.
