Ridley Park's Online Digital Community
There are a lot of things we can do to personally improve Ridley Park. Sure, there's a lot of things we can do to improve Ridley Park, but the key word of that sentence is "personal; and what we're willing to put forth personally for the benefit of others in Ridley Park. To start this conversation, here's a few of the suggestions of the activities I've enjoyed with my family.
We're a green town. Plant some flowers this summer by your mail box, in a container, or buy a hanging basket and hang it so passers-by can see it.
Get out in public. We're a safe, small, walk able town with local shopping, an award winning theater and local dining. Walk and shop our local business district and support the Ridley Park Farmer's Market every Thursday.
We have our very own lake. Take a walk around The Lake, go fishing, chill out on a bench...it's Ridley Park..."the gateway to Eastlake Park."
In Ridley Park we just might have more sporting events then ESPN. With half a dozen baseball fields in our 1.2x1.2 miles and dozens of Ridley Park Athletic Club teams, there's always a local event. Watch a game, cheer, meet your neighbors and cheer together.
Volunteer time at The Library, the Fire Company, or join one of the half dozen or so Borough committees who help make the borough run; there's always a need for new blood.
And then there's RPOL. Pick a topic, write a blog, enter an event, upload a photo, submit a video, start a discussion and communicate with others. There are a lot of things we can do to improve Ridley Park, the decision to act, well...that's personal.
