Dough Boy Park, which serves as a gateway entrance into the Northern Liberties, has been renovated. Designed by DIGSAU Architects, the new park provides seating, a cobblestone path, and a stormwater swale (with a sweet little, perhaps largely symbolic bridge). The design is meant to enforce a connection between the neighborhood and the Spring Garden El stop and the Delaware River.
