Lanier Playground in the Grays Ferry section of South Philadelphia is a disused 3-acre lot. Its location presents a great opportunity for the community to come together and create a gathering place that can serve many needs, including managing stormwater runoff through green features. The Trust for Public Land will launch a community design process with neighbors and various community organizations to generate designs to revitalize this playground.
