Phone Number Swap

OK everyone, here is my cell: 215 480 5564

Directions to FDR Park

The road in FDR is one-way - our site is a full 3/4 of the way around from the entrance.
Picnic area #14 (sign is graffitied over - How Philly!) has the dip bars and set-up for rings.
Picnic area #18 is a great spot for Hooverball and Grillin'.

Once you get past the Skate Park you will soon see a playground set on your left - a swing set with no swings (how Philly is that!) and a parallel bar dip station. There is a semi-circle driveway area to pull in. If you do not pull into the semi-circle and keep going on the road you soon hit a great parking lot, this lot is right next to picnic area #18 and real close to #14. I think the parking lot is our best place to meet.

I found these two maps on the web:

and some directions to the park:

DIRECTIONSDirections to FDR Park, South Broad St., Philadelphia From I-76 Take Exit for 611/Broad St. and head South. Pass Veterans Stadium and turn right at light onto Pattison Ave. Enter FDR Park 50 yds along Pattison Ave. on left From I-95 Take Exit for 611/Broad St. and head North. Before reaching Veterans Stadium turn left at light onto Pattison Ave. Enter FDR Park 50 yds along Pattison Ave. on left From Center City (by car) Take Broad St. South towards Stadiums. Pass Veterans Stadium and turn right at light onto Pattison Ave. Enter FDR Park 50 yds along Pattison Ave. on left. From Center City (by public transport) Take Broad St. subway line to Pattison Avenue. Exit Subway station and cross Broad St.heading away from stadiums along Pattison Ave. Enter FDR Park 50yds along Pattison Ave. on left.

Crossfit is alive in the City of Brotherly Love

It's been a long time coming but Crossfit Philly is finally happening. On August 20th there will be a group workout and BBQ down at FDR Park on I-95 and Patterson Ave. Everything starts around 9 a.m. Bring plenty of water and a good amount of grit.

Training tools are covered but you may want to bring some more food.
