Gold Star Park is a key pocket park located on Wharton St., between 6th St. and 7th St., in Philadelphia. We provide greenery and recreation in a concrete-dominated neighborhood.
The park is used for morning Tai Chi, kindergarten recess from Kirkbride Elementary, the Grassroots Bocce League, numerous picnics and birthday parties, and is a daily stop for the neighborhood dogs. We run varied programs for children, families, and dog owners throughout the summer.
Friends of Gold Star Park is a volunteer group that organizes programming at the park, seeks funding to support activities, and works to improve the physical park. We welcome volunteers to help make the park great!
