What are the Triangles?

The Triangles Committee is responsible for maintaining, beautifying, and organizing events at the pedestrian plaza at 23rd & South Streets. This space is maintained by SOSNA and is considered an impermanent pedestrian plaza. This means that every few years, SOSNA works with the city of Philadelphia to extend our contracts on the space so our community can continue to enjoy this urban oasis.

Native Pollinator Habitat at the Triangle

Native pollinator gardens are integral aspects of our local ecology that help plants and animals thrive. They are also critical stopping grounds for the annual flight of monarch butterflies as they make their great migration. In 2021, the Triangles received a Native Pollinator Habitat designation from Penn State.  This area is a growing ecological oasis, with new native species planted every year.  Scroll below to see some of the pollinator plants on display in the Triangles.

Grays Ferry Ave Improvements

The Vision Zero Committee and the Triangles Committee are working together to improve the area between South and Bainbridge and from South 22nd Street to South 24th Street, and together are applying for a major grant from the state ($1.5 million) to further develop our plans and execute the work.The Triangles committee is focusing on making the plaza permanent and has designed a space that is attractive. The Vision Zero Committee is proposing a redesign of the complicated intersection at Grays Ferry Avenue, Bainbridge, and South 23rd and South 24th Streets.
