The Friends of Malcolm X Park is a diverse group of volunteers from the immediate neighborhood and across Philadelphia who are interested in seeing Malcolm X Park thrive. The group meets in the park on the first Wednesday of every month during the warm months or in a member’s house adjacent to the park during the winter or in the event of rain. Our activities include organizing great events in the park, participating in clean-ups, advocating for new resources, and of course, socializing with our neighbors.
Malcolm X Memorial Park is a six acre site in West Philadelphia, extending west from 51st Street to 52nd Street and north from Larchwood Avenue to Pine Street. Home to more than 100 towering oaks, two elaborate childrens’ play areas, and dozens of comfortable benches and tables for relaxing and meeting, Malcolm X Park is a hub of activity for this diverse West Philadelphia neighborhood.
