Kids @ Play

Bring the kids to enjoy some food-oriented fun in the neighborhood!

When: On the 3rd Saturday of every month, from 9:30am - 11:30am. Next Date: Saturday, May 17th

Where: Gold Star Park (on Wharton Street, between 6th & 7th Streets)

The South Philly Food Co-op and Friends of Gold Star Park were awarded a grant from the Fairmount Park Conservancy to hold a kids’ play group this summer in Gold Star Park. Friends of Kirkbride Elementary has joined the fun as well.



We will be meeting once a month for food-oriented games and healthy snacks.  Our first playgroup meeting will feature fun with Mr. “Potato” Head, using different fruits and vegetables.  The park has a jungle gym and other toys will be available for the playgroup.

Gold Star Park is a pocket park that features a summer concert series and fall Halloween festival.  The Co-op has worked collaboratively with Gold Star Park for several years, tabling at concerts and holding a potluck event to reach new members. This event series is a great way for parents of young children to learn more and get involved with the Co-op!
