We Cut the Ribbon on Trolley Portal Gardens!

Sep 28, 2018 8 months ago

Hundreds of stakeholders, friends and neighbors attended the September 27th ribbon cutting for Trolley Portal Gardens. Guests heard from our featured speakers including Mayor Jim Kenney, Representative Jim Roebuck, Councilwoman Jannie Blackwell, Deputy Secretary Lauren Imgrund, PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, SEPTA General Manager Jeffrey Knueppel, Trolley Car Station Owner Ken Weinstein, Executive Vice President, University of Pennsylvania Craig Carnaroli, Executive Director of the William Penn Foundation Shawn McCaney, and President and CEO of PIDC John Grady.

Key partners, stakeholders and officials described the incredible teamwork and partnerships required to transform the space into a verdant new public space. After the remarks, guests sampled the delicious food and drink offerings from Trolley Car Station while touring the new public space and restaurant.  

This project would not be possible without the support and collaboration of the neighborhood. UCD is so excited to have realized the dream of upgrading this area into a magnificent public space for thousands of neighbors, commuters, and local employees. Now that the event is complete, we encourage you to dine at Trolley Car Station and to come back and enjoy this space we've created for the entire community to enjoy.
