The Friends of Race Street Pier Steering Committee meets on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at the offices of the DRWC at: 121 N. Columbus Boulevard, 6:30pm. Everyone is welcome to attend.
The Friends of Race Street Pier (the Peers) is a volunteer driven group. We are always looking for more people to get involved! The goal of the group is to bring the neighborhood voice to the pier. The DRWC is committed to working with the Race Street Peers in order to ensure that the community gets involved with making the park their own and making sure that the park remains an asset for the neighborhood.
How to get involved:
Join a committee and help organize this newly developing group
Help to spread the word to your friends, neighbors, networks, etc. Attend events and help out at events
The Steering Committee meets on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at the offices of the DRWC at: 121 N. Columbus Boulevard, 6:30pm -- everyone is welcome to attend.
The programming committee focuses on identifying potential activities/events for the pier. This past summer, the committee proposed a First Friday event and worked with the DRWC to find bands to play. The committee also organized a two month‐long Saturday Yoga class on the pier. If you have some great ideas for events and activities that would be perfect for the pier, the programming committee wants to hear your ideas! To get more involved with this committee contact:

The committee is working hard to get the word out about the pier and about events happening on the pier. Currently, the best places to learn more about the pier are through the Facebook Page, Twitter (@friendsofRSP), and through the DRWC website.

The DRWC staff welcomes community members to participate in monitoring and maintaining the pier. The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) is working with a contractor to maintain the landscaping on the pier and PHS is interested in working with neighbors that are looking to get their hands dirty and help with maintaining the planting beds.
