On June 10, Brandywine Realty Trust will celebrate the opening of Drexel Square, Philadelphia’s newest publicly-accessible community park. Following an afternoon ribbon cutting ceremony, the park will come alive in the evening with a free, open to the public festival featuring a DJ, food trucks, lawn games, retro arcade games, and more. The community will also be invited to view the world’s largest video game display in partnership with Drexel University’s Entrepreneurial Game Studio. Students and teachers from K-12 schools across the Greater Philadelphia region have been working with experts in Drexel University’s Entrepreneurial Game Studio, including Dr. Frank Lee, to design and code new games for the building. To debut their new games, the students and teachers will step up to the gaming controls. People in attendance can enter a drawing for a chance to play the games.
Drexel Square is a 1.3-acre public park and the first completed project of Brandywine’s $3.5 billion 14-acre master-planned Schuylkill Yards development.
