The annual South Ardmore Independence Day celebration will take place on Thursday, July 4th!

Bring your children, nieces, nephews, grandkids, and of course, your neighbors.
Our event begins with a parade of bikes, strollers and wagons decked out in red, white and blue.

We will depart from Chestnutwold Elementary at 10am, led by fire trucks from the Merion and Oakmont Fire Companies.
From the school we will proceed up Belmont Avenue, turning right on Pont Reading and then left on Morris, before continuing to Elwell Field at the intersection of Ardmore and Morris Avenues.

There, kids can participate in field events, compete in the “best-decorated” contest, get temporary tattoos, and play with plastic gimp string. If you’re hot, get wet under The Big Splash! If you’re hungry, hot dogs, pretzels, baked goods, and cold drinks will be available for purchase.

Thanks to the tireless efforts of community members (aka, the SABA Playground Committee) and the leadership of Commissioners Jeff Heilmann and Larry Holmes, and Parks & Rec Dept.'s Eric Gillard and Tim Denny,we have secured funding for a beautiful new play structure to replace the old Castle at Elwell Field.

Now all we have to do is build it.

We'll be doing a community build on June th and 10th, and we need all the skilled/semi skilled volunteers we can get. If you're interested, or you've got tools to offer, please contact elwellvols@comcast.net. If we all pitch in for 2 days, we can improve the neighborhood for generations to come.

More details to follow. We will be having at least one general planning/informational meeting with interested volunteers within the next few weeks.

Elwell Field playground piece

Tags:

As many of you may have noticed, the large wooden playground piece at Elwell Field has been fenced off and inaccessible for a few weeks. As some of you may have noticed, it was removed from the park today. This leaves a large empty space in the park and in the hearts of the neighborhood children.

The township had determined that much of the wood was damaged, making the piece unsafe, so they fenced it off. They then determined that enough of the wood was damaged that it was beyond repair and needed to be removed.

The piece was purchased in 1990 for $30,000 and was the premier playground piece in the township at the time. Unfortunately, time has taken its toll. At the time, it was purchased with HUD funds. Some HUD funding, and possibly other resources, can be available to purchase a new piece, but not nearly enough to cover the cost.
