Today, virtually all of the surrounding industry has disappeared and Penn Treaty Park now sits in the heart of Philadelphiaâ€™s redeveloping riverfront. Significantly enlarged during the 1980s by annexing a neighboring former industrial site, the park is now several acres and enjoys some of the best views in the city. Pennâ€™s Landing, the Benjamin Franklin Bridge, and the Cityâ€™s high rise buildings can all be seen from one location. Children can play on newly installed playground equipment. And, close by the working river, you can watch ocean freighters and local tugs wend their way along the shipping channel close to the parkâ€™s shoreline.
