“We have houses open to the public all year round. This year the local kids who were involved with the playground recreation aftercare program, hand-colored all of these ornaments for us. They came in, decorated our tree, even wrote things they love about Philadelphia on the back,” Fairmount Park Conservancy executive director Maura McCarthy said.
