Parkside Edge

Parkside Edge is the first phase of a transformative park and community involvement project, which beautifies the edge of Parkside Avenue in Philadelphia, and creates new (and safer) pedestrian and community connections into West Fairmount Park. The 5-acre site revitalizes the area by adding gathering spaces in neighborhood open-air “living rooms,” lusher landscaping, more and safer pedestrian connections into the park, and attractive rain gardens, as part of a green stormwater infrastructure system.Langan provided engineering services, ranging from survey to site-civil design of innovative green stormwater infrastructure, from design of traffic calming (such as a mid-block crossing with RRFBs) to permitting and construction support services.
