ABOUT:

Pastorius Park is a 16-acre gem nestled in the heart of residential Chestnut Hill. The land that comprises the present-day park was donated by George Woodward (1863-1952), a prominent physician, developer, and progressive politician. The park was designed by local landscape architect Frederick W. G. Peck, and its construction executed by the Works Program Administration (WPA) in 1937. Peck's design, heavily influenced by Frederick Law Olmstead, reflects the community's desire and Woodward's vision of the park as a passive green space for both reflection and recreation.

About:

Shofuso Japanese House and Garden is a traditional-style Japanese house and nationally-ranked garden in Philadelphia’s West Fairmount Park that reflects the history of Japanese culture in Philadelphia, from the 1876 Centennial Exposition to present day.

The garden offers a koi pond, teahouse garden, and courtyard garden as well as the Sakura Pavilion which hosts various events.  The Japanese House and Garden was conceived as part of an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Designed by Japanese mid-century modernist architect Junzo Yoshimura in 1953, the house was built in Nagoya, Japan using traditional materials and techniques. The house was part of “The House in the Museum Garden” series, which exhibited three different types of structures that influenced mid-century modern American architecture. Shofuso was the last structure in the exhibit and was moved to Philadelphia at its conclusion in 1954. Shofuso was reassembled at the current site in 1957-58, where there has been a continuous Japanese presence since the 1876 Centennial Exposition when the first Japanese garden in North America was installed behind a small Japanese bazaar.

About:

FDR Park is located in South Philadelphia near the Delaware River and the South Philadelphia Sports Complex. In addition to sports fields, the approximately 350 acre park provides trails for walking and running, convenient fishing spots along Edgewood and Meadow Lakes, and lawns for picnics. The park was built to the design of Olmsted Brothers, the firm of Frederick Law Olmsted and John Charles Olmsted in the early 20th century. The parkland was reclaimed mostly from marshlands of Greenwich Island, one of several islands in the area created by river channels present in the 18th and 19th centuries. Audubon Society of Pennsylvania has said that FDR Park is one of the best places in Philadelphia to observe birds. This is because it contains a variety of different habitats, including wetlands and waterways.

Located at Ford Drive and Strawberry Mansion Drive, the bridge serves as a link between East and West Fairmount Park, used by pedestrians, vehicles, horses, and bicycles. Dating back to the late 1800s - early 1900s, the bridge was shut down in 1996 after being declared unsafe due to severe deterioration. The Streets Department undertook restoration of the bridge and reopened it in 1999.  The Strawberry Mansion Bridge Restoration was nominated for and won the 2002 Preservation Achievement Award, given by the Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia.
