Wanted to teach my child about history while playing at the park. Who knows if nowadays students will learn about these great people. My child loved the park. I loved the park benches with Malcolm X name on them. The art mural, history lessons on the light poles ( could be more), music playing with groups of people listening and dancing Overall, great experience. Location in west Philly.

Malcolm X Memorial Park, a cherished green space in West Philadelphia, is steeped in cultural significance and community spirit. Named in honor of the civil rights leader Malcolm X, the park is a six-acre urban oasis around 51st Street and Pine Street, known for its summer jazz festival and vibrant atmosphere. Recently, the park faced a devastating fire that damaged its electrical system, restrooms, and a beloved mural of Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz. The community has rallied together, with plans to restore the park and its facilities, reflecting the resilience and unity of the neighborhood. This restoration effort, including a community cleanup and financial support from local representatives, underscores the park’s importance as a symbol of heritage and a focal point for community engagement.

Malcolm X Memorial Park is a very nice park. Which hosts a lot of events throughout the Summer. I went there for the Father’s Day cookout. They had lots of different vendors there.performers a parade.

Theatre in the X does a production in the Malcolm X Memorial park every August. The neighborhood can get loud, i.e. motorbikes, but overall, it is a nice clean park to attend events held there.
