FISHTOWN (WPVI) -- Tuesday crews broke ground on a highly anticipated project in Fishtown.
Renovations are now underway at the Alexander Adaire Schoolyard.
It's currently just bare asphalt..
But it will soon have a playground, benches and a nature trail.
The finished product will provide the neighborhood with more green space.
It will also protect the Delaware River by capturing stormwater on rainy days.
