The 2015 Spring Clean Up was a huge success! Thanks to everyone who came out to lend hand at keeping Mt. Airy Beautiful.
With 25 volunteers we mulched trees, picked up trash and cleaned Trolley Car and Pergola park.
Thanks to ACME for providing healthy snacks, and Brian James for the beautiful photos.

BID Dedicates Trolley Car Park- April 5, 2014
In a true public/private partnership, the Mt. Airy Business Improvement District (BID), along with Trolley Car Diner and SEPTA, has created a pocket park adjacent to SEPTA’s Germantown Depot (6725-43 Germantown Ave). To kick-off the 7th Annual Philly Spring Clean-up, Councilwoman Cindy Bass, Trolley Car Diner owner and BID Chair, Ken Weinstein, and SEPTA dedicated the pocket park – “Trolley Car Park”.
“Business districts are stronger when they have gathering spots for people to come together,” explained Weinstein. “Trolley Car Diner is happy to help make this happen here in Mt. Airy.”
What was once a drab corner is being transformed thanks to the three partners. Weinstein is generously donating planting material and a sign, SEPTA will be weeding and removing poison oak, adding three benches and painting the fence.
The Mt. Airy BID has agreed to maintain the pocket park as well as install the initial plantings. Yvonne Haskins, BID Board member, heads up the park project. “Developing this little park has been a delight and a labor of love. Kids from Houston School stopped one day to admire the park and surprised me by saying, ‘and we’ll make certain if we see anyone dropping trash here to ask them to please don’t do that…we think this is so nice!’ It doesn’t get any better than that!”
