Slight change of plans from what you may have heard previously about this event. We're changing the date to Sunday, August 31st as we figured it would be easier to make the trip to Philly on a Sunday afternoon right after church. This will be taking the place of our monthly Resolved meeting for August.
So here's the skinny.
What: As a group, we'll be taking a trip into Philly to hang out at Spruce Street Harbor Park (AKA a pop-up summertime village). Click here for a write-up and some sweet photos of the park. Maybe you're thinking, "why go all the way to Philly for a park?" Well, this isn't your average park. Does your neighborhood park have floating restaurants, concerts, hammocks, fire pits, a boardwalk, shuffleboard, lawn games, ping pong, giant Jenga, an arcade, a mist walk, and an urban beach?.....Nuff said.....Admission is free, but bring some extra cash for tolls, parking, food, etc. You can either eat lunch on the way or you can eat lunch at one of the restaurants at the park. Feel free to bring friends!
When: Sunday, August 31st after church. The goal is to leave the church building between 12:15 and 12:30 PM. We have no end-time in mind, so you can stay in the city as late as you want. But keep in mind the park closes at 1:00 AM (seriously, it closes at 1:00 AM).
Where: Spruce Street Harbor Park. 401 S. Columbus Boulevard, Philadelphia, PA 19106. It's at the intersection of Columbus Boulevard and Spruce Street on the Delaware River waterfront.
How: We encourage folks to carpool! If you're traveling by car, look for parking lots located at Lombard Circle, Walnut and Market Streets at Columbus Boulevard. If you're traveling by PATCO, it's about a 20 minute walk from the 8th & Market station. If you're new to Resolved, you don't know too many people yet, and you don't like the idea of traveling to Philly by yourself, we plan on having a few volunteer carpool drivers who will stand by our church's Welcome Center around 12:15. If you're interested in being a volunteer driver, please email me at email@example.com
If anyone has any questions please let us know. We're looking forward to creating this new memory together!
