Saunders Park Greene

Saunders Park Green is located at 39th and Powelton streets, behind Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. This small but popular park has, in recent years, evolved into a community destination with the addition of much-needed park benches and picnic tables, and a variety of popular festivals and events.


A long-term park master plan is currently being developed. This year Phase 1 will begin by removing diseased and potentially hazardous trees and replacing them with healthy new breeds, installing information kiosks and new trash cans, and repairing the park's stone wall. The maintenance is overseen by the partnerships of Peoples' Emergency Center CDC, Saunders Park Neighbors, Penn Presbyterian Medical Center and Philadelphia Horticultural Society, with funding from the William Penn Foundation.
