A fiercely unique slice of West Philadelphia, Cedar Park is known both for its overtly Bohemian vibe and associated cultural diversity. Spanning the space between 46th and 52nd Streets to the east and west and sealed north and south by Larchwood Street and Kingsessing Avenue, the neighborhood, named for the modest green space at 50th and Baltimore, is primarily residential, but the city’s restaurant, arts and music scenes enjoy prominent footholds here.

Originally founded in the mid-19th century as a “streetcar suburb” of Center City Philadelphia, this area possesses an aesthetic originality and personalized energy that helps stand out from nearby neighborhoods like Spruce Hill and University City. Plenty of urban areas fancy themselves DIY, but the difference with Cedar Park is that its residents actually put concept into action, manifesting in the form of independent businesses, neighborhood initiatives and inclusive activities that foster a true sense of community collaboration.
