ABOUT THE RESTORATION
In 2000, the Parks Conservancy restored the 70-year-old gatehouse at Reynolds Street as their first showcase project. Project plans were used from the original architect, John Russell Pope, and landscape architects, Innocenti and Webel. The leaking asphalt roof was replaced with the original mixed clay tiles, the stone was cleaned, and 24 new trees and shrubs planted. Years later, the Gatehouse remains a shining beacon for Frick Park visitors.
