About Cedar Park

Cedar Park is a neighborhood within the University City region of West Philadelphia. Like neighboring Spruce Hill, Cedar Park was originally founded as a “streetcar suburb” of Philadelphia and today is known as one of the most culturally diverse and progressive communities in the city. Cedar Park’s boundaries are defined as Larchwood Avenue to the north, Kingsessing Avenue to the south, 46th Street to the east and 52nd Street to the west. It is named after a small park found on 50th and Baltimore that serves as a popular gathering place for community events. It is primarily residential, although several trendy restaurants and cultural venues have found a home here.

The architecture of Cedar Park sets it apart from many of the adjacent communities, with several large, Queen Anne style homes still standing and in use. Since the turn of the 21st century, there has been a campaign to refurbish and revitalize Cedar Park, and the community hosts many free cultural, artistic and culinary events throughout the year that give it a distinctly bohemian vibe.

Residents of Cedar Park have placed an emphasis on supporting and promoting local businesses, including a food co-op and several restaurants featuring cuisines from all over the world. In addition, there has been a push to preserve green spaces and to cultivate a truly unique aesthetic that makes it stand out from other nearby neighborhoods.

Like other communities in West Philadelphia, Cedar Park is eminently pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly, with many residents using those options as their primary modes of transport. The neighborhood is easily reached on the Baltimore Avenue trolley line or by car over the Grays Ferry Bridge.

Young families have been drawn to the neighborhood in recent years, and as a result there is a strong investment in the quality of the community schools. Students here are served by Penn Alexander Elementary School, known as one of the best primary schools in the city.
