THE TRUST for Public Land managed the renovation of the William Dick schoolyard and helped the city raise $10 million to "green" it and others.

The next two sites ready for makeovers are:

* Hank Gathers Recreation Center, 25th and Diamond streets, across from the William Dick School

* William Cramp School, Mascher Street near Ontario, Fairhill

Five other playgrounds on the greening list are:

* Conestoga Community Playground, 53rd and Media streets, West Philadelphia

* Lanier Playground, 29th and Tasker streets, Grays Ferry

* 37th and Mount Vernon Playground, Mantua

* Taggart School, Porter Street near 4th, South Philadelphia

* Collazo Playground, Mascher and Westmoreland streets, Fairhill

The last two sites have not yet been selected.
