Photo Monday: Ryan Howard & Hunting Park Volunteer Day

In honor of the Phillies race for the pennant, we wanted to share some pics of the fabulous Ryan Howard’s contributions from The Ryan Howard Family Foundation. They’re dedicated funding & support to the Hunting Park revitalization effort.

Philadelphia Parks & Recreation & Fairmount Park Conservancy recently broke ground on the Hunting Park baseball field to kick off the field’s $500,000 renovation project. City of Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, Citizens Bank President and CEO Daniel  Fitzpatrick and The Phillies’ Ryan Howard joined Philadelphia Parks & Recreation and the Fairmount Park Conservancy in the ceremonial groundbreaking.

Pics from breaking the ground:

More than 75 volunteers gathered in North Philadelphia’s 87-acre Hunting Park for the 7th annual Growing the Neighborhood volunteer day. Growing the Neighborhood program is a program of citizen-initiated park improvements to Fairmount neighborhood parks.   The program has helped rejuvenate 13 neighborhood parks through capital improvements and annual volunteer days.
