Historic Walking Tour of Pastorius Park

April 27 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am


Early in the 20th Century, the City of Philadelphia made region-wide plans that included a large intersection of three parkways in the heart of Chestnut Hill. Condemnation and clearing opened the ground for the grand intersection—a traffic circle. But World War I interrupted the work. At that point, the community was not yet settled in its final form; if the project had continued, Pastorius Park would have never been.

Join Landscape Architect Rob Fleming and Friends of Pastorius Park Vice President James McNabb, as we explore the history of Pastorius Park and it’s future as a newly designated Level 1 Arboretum.

This event is held in partnership with the Chestnut Hill Conservancy. Space is limited to 20 participants, registration required.
