Packer Park came together as a joining of different real estate ventures. Some dated back to the 50’s, but others such as the Brinton Estates were not completed until the 1990’s. The community is one of four residential zones that comprise the Philadelphia Sports Complex Special Services District.
Originally, this area was part of Passyunk Township. This now defunct township was settled by inhabitants from New Sweden. The township became part of Philadelphia in 1854 with the passage of the Act of Consolidation.
The Philadelphia Sports Complex lies to the east. It consists of Lincoln Financial Field, Citizens Bank Park, the dining complex of Xfinity Livel and Wachovia Center.

Packer Park originated as a planned community back in the 1950’s. Three separate developments were combined to create it: Siena Place, The Reserve, and Stella Maris Homes. The place has now expanded to include some 1200 townhomes that are unrivaled for grace and space.
This neighborhood is so esteemed that it has helped to revitalize the entire district in which it is situated. The well-built homes found here are set apart from nearby South Philadelphia neighborhoods by a series of cul-de-sacs, landscaped walkways, and lush green spaces. Franklin Delano Roosevelt Park lies immediately to the south.
Real estate here is especially prized because of the convenient access it affords to I-95 and the South Philadelphia Sports Complex. It is bounded on the north by Packer Avenue and on the south by Hartranft Sreet. Broad Street forms the eastern boundary, and 20th Street is the western boundary.
