Marconi Plaza Garden Bed Clean Up

On October 14, The Friends of Marconi Plaza, along with Parks and Recreation, and volunteers from Woodify(based in Cherry Hill), cleaned out three garden beds at Marconi Plaza. These beds are located on the southwest corner of Broad and Oregon Avenues, the southwest corner of 13th and Oregon Avenues, and 15th and Moyamensing Avenue. These beds are at three different entry points to the park and have been plagued by litter and weeds for a while. They were planted on October 18 with native species that we hope will thrive in the park. The Friends of Marconi hope these will improve the look of the three entry points and are looking for volunteers to help maintain these beds. We need help with weeding, watering, and maintenance. Please contact the FRIENDS OF MARCONI and visit their facebook page at
