EPA introduces interactive park bench in Philadelphia

CENTER CITY (WPVI) -- Earth Day is Wednesday, and one Center City park is going high tech to celebrate.

The Environmental Protection Agency introduced a special bench at Independence National Historic Park, on 6th and Arch streets.

The bench is interactive. It has a built-in monitoring station, so it can measure air quality and the weather.

The bench was developed by the EPA to raise public awareness of the environment.
