Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

Mario Lanza Park

Mario Lanza Park

Well-kept homes that hearken back to Colonial times line Philadelphia’s oldest residential neighborhood, Queen Village. It’s also home to Mario Lanza Park, named in honor of the celebrity tenor and Philadelphia native. With attractive landscaping, charming walkways and benches and a separate area for dogs, the park provides a central meeting place for families, civic groups and dog lovers.
