Civic Initiatives

Pew identifies and supports civic opportunities that can strengthen the city’s appeal to visitors and residents alike.

We partner with many local institutions in preserving and highlighting the city’s unique history, including projects that improve its most important public spaces and civic treasures.

  • History, Tourism and Public Spaces

    Pew seeks out opportunities to preserve and enhance our historical and cultural treasures, and support the restoration of important civic spaces so that they might be even more inviting for visitors and residents.
  • Slideshow - Enhancing the Benjamin Franklin Parkway

    A major focus for Pew has been helping to enhance the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the tree-lined boulevard that connects City Hall to the vast greenery of Fairmount Park, and home to many of the region’s most important cultural institutions. View a slideshow of “before” and “after” photos of this renewed boulevard and its attractions.
