Kahn Park summer concert series

Things to do in July

Of course, there’s more to Philly in July than the Fourth. Big-time events, festivals and exhibitions take place all over Greater Philadelphia, including the bright and beautiful Chinese Lantern Festival in Franklin Square and the breathtaking Light: Installations by Bruce Munro displays at Longwood Gardens.

Seger Park’s Woofstock

Happening every Tuesday through September from 5:30-7:30 PM. Join the Friends of Seger Dog Park for live music. Bring your dog and enjoy beers & bevies in the dog park. Or bring a picnic blanket and enjoy a family outing in the non-dog park side of the park. Ice cream and beer vendors will be on site. 

McCall Home & School Association is hosting a meet & greet on June 28 at 5 pm. Bring the kiddos and start making friends to ease the first day of school butterflies.

Property Tax Assessments

2023 reassessed property values are now online. Please review your new assessment and available abatement and exemption programs that may reduce your property’s real estate tax bill.


Independence Library Events

Have you visited our neighborhood Free Library of Philadelphia? Independence Library is located on 7th between Chestnut and Market and has a variety of events to engage readers of all levels. Find out what events are happening.


Have you tried the Philly 311 app?

It’s so easy to report graffiti, overflowing trash cans, potholes and more using the City’s free 311 app. No need to sit on the phone waiting. Snap a pic, add a note and upload with address. Visit the App Store and Google Play to download the app. The City has stepped up their response times and it’s a game changer! Help keep our community clean by reporting issues.


Tired of solicitations on your door? 

Sign up for a “Circular-Free Property” decal. Violation for leaving flyers at properties with the decal carries $100 penalty. 

Fill out the form and mail or email in.


Want a free street tree?
