The first project to be implemented through Philadelphia’s Pedestrian Plaza Program, Woodland Green combines an under-utilized street segment with a barren traffic triangle to create a new oasis for pedestrians. At this gateway to Woodland Avenue, pedestrians will relax at tables and chairs shaded by trees and umbrellas, while flowers bloom around them. This project was made possible by a partnership between the Mayor’s Office of Transportation and Utilities, the Streets Department, SEPTA, the Department of Commerce, University of the Sciences in Philadelphia, and University City District, with Design-build Services provided by ThinkGreen.
