Penn Park update

Penn Park, a new urban park east of the Highline and stretching from Walnut Street to South Street features a fabric of tightly interwoven recreation and athletic components. Formal and informal play fields are framed and subdivided by patches of canopy trees extending the familiar landscape of the campus.

Penn Park combines elements of sports activity with the opportunity for relaxation and informal play. Athletic venues will include sprint turf fields, a softball stadium, tennis center, and enclosed season air structure.
