Reseeding of our wonderful Columbus Square field has begun. We are looking forward to saying goodbye to the dirt and hello to green grass in time for Spring 2023.

Our field sees constant – and increasing – use. Grassy areas like this are a natural resource that need management to keep the grass green and healthy. Like any living thing, grass needs rest and the talents of groundskeepers to refresh it and keep it healthy.

The Friends of Columbus Square thank the good people of Philadelphia Parks and Recreation and Councilman Mark Squilla for their support of the community’s request to make repairs to the field irrigation system and re-seed the field.

While the main field is resting so that it can re-open for an active Spring and Summer 2023 season, please enjoy the many other areas of the park!
