NOW WE KNOW what the big sculpture across the street from The Piazza complex is, it’s part of a new pop up park called The Pod Park. The Pod Park features 35,000 feet of outdoor space featuring dining, art, civic space, kids and fitness components, as well as regular entertainment and events.
Waving from the Center of Piazza Pod Park will be BEBOT, a 33-foot tall, 13,000-pound robot statue from Burning Man that was flown in special for this park. Events that were traditionally held in The Piazza Courtyard will move to the street on Germantown Avenue and into Piazza Pod Park.
The Pod Park will bring with it nearly a dozen exciting food, drink and coffee vendors – with some of the biggest names in the city. The first list of early vendors is below like Dim Sum House, Spread Bagelry, French Toast Bites by Lokal Artisan Foods, Tiki Tacos, Mama Maria’s Italian Ice, New Liberty Distilling, Urban Village, Empanada Box and others to be announced. Plus Tildie’s Toy Box, from East Passyunk Avenue, will offer opportunities for fun for the whole family. Piazza Pod Park announces Osayi Osunde’s newest location for Fit Academy at Piazza Pod Park. Look for HIIT-inspired boot camps in a specially designed pod that opens from top to bottom, and faces the inside of the park.
Starting in the middle of May, Pod Park is open seven days a week, from 7:00am to 10:00pm, and until Midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.
