A few weeks ago postcards and letters were mailed to Philadelphia residents offering a protection plan for sewer and water lines. The letters included the official Seal of Philadelphia on the envelopes to keep them from looking like a scam, but a lot of people are asking if the program is legitimate. Here’s an overview of the background, what the plan is, and some insight to help you make a decision on whether or not to purchase the protection plan.
Leverington Cemetery was established in 1745. The cemetery is located in Central Roxborough next to Bob’s Diner on Ridge Ave. The Cemetery includes graves of soldiers from both the Revolutionary War and the Civil War.
The Pretzel Park Dog Park is an off-leash dog park located along Cresson and Cotton Streets one block away from Main Street in Manayunk. The park is a great place for dogs to run around and get some exercise and a great place to meet other local dog lovers.
The Upper Roxborough Reservoir Preserve is a 34-acre park bound by Port Royal Ave, Lare St, Summit Ave, and Eva St in Roxborough, Philadelphia. There’s a small parking lot on the corner of Port Royal and Lare. Stairs lead up to the path around the park where you’ll see views of the reservoir, a scenic field, and woods. There are two vistas along the path where you’ll find views of Upper Roxborough and the Center City skyline. The Upper Roxborough Reservoir Preserve is a great place to bring kids and for dog-walking (dogs must be on a leash).
