Rodney Square Breaks Ground for Facelift

Mayor Purzycki, Governor Carney and the Rodney Square Conservancy broke ground to begin work on the long-awaited renovation of Rodney Square. Improvements will include new masonry and paving features, irrigation systems, upgraded lights and electrical system, lighted fountains, planters, benches and tables, trees, shrubs, green areas and improved public access.
