Project: Penn Treaty Park


Penn Treaty Park

Location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Projecting into the Delaware River in Northeast Philadelphia, the Penn Treaty Park is a tribute to the historic Treaty of Friendship that William Penn made with Native Americans in 1682. Sherwood was part of a Philadelphia-based design team working with numerous community and public organizations to develop a master plan to enhance this historic place in our nation’s history. Accepted as an ASLA Sustainable Sites Initiative Pilot Project, we developed concepts for landscape integrated water and energy systems to improve the existing watershed, restore riparian habitat, and facilitate a beautiful, diverse and sustainable public space that integrates natural beauty with community experience.
