A bike Share station is coming to Clark Park! Poll numbers indicate that this is the most popular choice for a station in West Philly.
The majority of Clark Park board members support putting a station on the south side of Chester Avenue, near 43rd Street. This highly visible location would be near, but not in the way of our popular farmer’s market. It would only take up three parking spaces, and may encourage people to bike to the park, instead of driving. (Parking will be way more affected by the proposed development at 43rd and Baltimore.)
Keep in mind, if the station doesn’t work here, it can be moved later.
Please call Councilwoman Jannie Blackwell’s office in support of this bike share location. Call (215) 686-3418/3419 between before March 13th. Ask to speak with John Fenton, Director of Constituent Services. He knows Clark Park well. Sample message “ My name is _______.
