IMG_5035The Friends of Malcolm X Park is a diverse group of volunteers from the immediate neighborhood and across Philadelphia who are interested in seeing Malcolm X Park thrive.  The group meets in the park on the first Wednesday of every month during the warm months or in a member’s house adjacent to the park during the winter or in the event of rain.  Our activities include organizing great events in the park, participating in clean-ups, advocating for new resources, and of course, socializing with our neighbors.

Malcolm X Memorial Park is a six acre site in West Philadelphia, extending west from 51st Street to 52nd Street and north from Larchwood Avenue to Pine Street.  IMG-20120107-00158Home to more than 100 towering oaks, two elaborate childrens’ play areas, and dozens of comfortable benches and tables for relaxing and meeting, Malcolm X Park is a hub of activity for this diverse West Philadelphia neighborhood.
