The final four performances of the One Year Wissahickon Park Project will take place the next four Sundays, June 8,15, 22, & 29. Performances begin at 10:30AM and run 45 minutes. I want to encourage folks to come out and enjoy the park and the lovely weather and partake in some art as well!
Next Sunday, June 8, we will be performing at Livezey Waterfall. Its a man made waterfall. I believe it was part of one of the mills that used to line the Wissahickon. Its broken and it breaks the gravitational flow of the river into myriad flows and songs. Its a lovely site; the steps make for good seating close to the water.
Directions: Livezey waterfall is off of Forbidden Drive, just north of the Pachella Field entrance (off Henry Ave), or the Mt. Airy Ave entrance (off Wissahickon Ave); and south of the Valley Green entrances. It should take 15 to 20 minutes to walk to the site depending on where you enter. Don't worry about being late. We will be there 45 minutes.
Clothing-- Depending on the day you may want to layer as the park is considerably cooler than the city. You will also probably want to wear sunglasses and/or a hat. Definitely wear comfortable walking shoes.
Travel light! Bring only the essentials; bottled water might be a good idea if its a warm day; also insect repellent and sunscrean.
Take advantage of your trip to enjoy the park, take a leisurely walk, or make this a stop on your walking, biking, or jogging program.
Its up to you how you want to engage with the event: stay a long time or leave quickly; go away and come back; see it in passing. Its up to you.
