Groundbreaking for Penn Park on November 6

According to the University of Pennsylvania Almanac

A ceremonial groundbreaking will be held at Penn Park on Friday, November 6. The event tent will be located east of Levy Tennis Pavilion, at the west gate to the Penn Park site. Penn Park is a 24-acre site on the eastern edge of the campus, offering beautiful views of the Center City skyline located along the Schuylkill River between Walnut and South Street. The Park will expand Penn’s athletic and recreation facilities within a broader public open space. The primary facilities will include: multi-purpose artificial fields (one enclosed by a seasonal air structure), outdoor tennis courts, and associated program elements consisting of restrooms, spectator seating and parking. The landscape architect is Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, Inc. It is expected to be completed by summer 2011.
