Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

Skyline from Penn Park

Skyline from Penn Park

Penn Park, which sits along the banks of the Schuylkill River, provides fields and tracks for sporting enthusiasts, as well as a perfect location for a picnic with a skyline view. Green space, restaurants, bars, shops, museums, galleries and two major education centers (Drexel University and University of Pennsylvania) make West Philadelphia’s University City neighborhood feel like one big, culture-heavy town.
