MapList

A distinct district wedged between Center City and Fairmount proper, Spring Garden was originally built up to accommodate wealthy industrialists in the second half of the 19th century.

The makeup and major draws of the neighborhood — there are multiple religious and educational institutions here — have changed dramatically since that time, but lucky for us, much of the architecture, placed under historical protection, remains in all its Victorian glory.

Cordoned off by Spring Garden Street to the south, Fairmount Avenue to the north, Pennsylvania Avenue westward and Broad Street to the east, Spring Garden’s charming, sleepy feel is a byproduct of sitting north of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the hopping boulevard that features Philly’s first-rate Museum Row. Exciting development along each of Spring Garden’s borders suggests it’s a neighborhood poised for a renaissance of its own.
