Walk In the Footsteps of Thomas Meehan- The Father of Philadelphia Parks
Join East Mt. Airy Tree Tenders for a Neighborhood Tree Stroll with Ken Leroy, Arborist, Historian and Storyteller Extraordinaire.
Did you know that East Mt. Airy’s “boulevards” are actually the remnants of Thomas Meehan’s 19th century nursery? Learn about East Mt. Airy’s history as a Garden Capitol, visit streets and explore tree cover influenced by Meehan. The stroll will be followed by a reception at 4pm.
