Pennypack Park has been a popular gathering place for community members and visitors for decades. Now widely associated with the annual Pennypack Park Festival, which began as a grassroots project in the 1970s for weekly musical performances, the park has a long history of creativity. Most activity still revolves around the yearly festival—it was revived in the past decade to restore the bandshell and the park’s musical presence—and it now boasts a namesake scholarship as well as plenty of fundraising efforts and events. A visit to Pennypack Park will make it easy to see why this green space is worth all the fuss.
