The Fermata appraisal of recreation and entertainment opportunities in East Park, West Park, and the Wissahickon is final. For the past 18 months we have been exploring this most historic park system, and our recommendations are now complete. The Philadelphia Parks and Recreation Department (PP&R) has been an honor and joy to work with, particularly Commissioner Mike DiBerardinis and his assistant Kathleen Muller. The entire staff has been unwaveringly supportive, and we thank all of them for their invaluable assistance. We have posted a PDF of this report in the Fermata library.
As promised, here is Ted’s presentation from NAI in Gamboa. There will be more information on the NAI meeting to follow.
Ted also photographed many of the scenes and wildlife in the area. Many of these photographs were taken on the grounds of the resort or boating about Gatun Lake. Click on the photo to access the entire gallery.
For those interested in the current data from Pew Internet about cell phone use, we have included a presentation from their most recent newsletter.
