Are You Pregnant Coming To Wharton?
For The Active Mom
The world's largest landscaped urban park, Fairmount is
accessible to all Philadelphians;
in fact, no city resident
lives more than a mile from one of the 65 neighborhood parks
that form part of Fairmount. From strolling by Boathouse Row
to rollerblading, playing Frisbee, or simply running around,
this is an ideal location for outdoor activities.
There is no actual playground, but many parents gather in
the late afternoon around the turtles. Babies and kids
like to bring chalk and color on the bricks as well as run
around the grassy areas.
There is no actual playground, but parents with small
children tend to gather around the goat statue and at the
pool. The pool is drained in the fall and serves as a
HUGE play area for kids.
