Culture and Convenience Near Logan Square Apartments
Logan Square—located just one half mile from The Packard Motor Car Building —is home to some of the city’s most celebrated treasures. Bounded by Market Street, Spring Garden Street, Broad Street, and the Schuylkill River, this neighborhood packs together fun, leisure, and history.
Situated in the middle of the neighborhood are endless attractions and monuments, which ultimately drive the popularity of Logan Square. Logan Square gets its name from the notably famous park located at the heart of the neighborhood: Logan Square Park. This public space was included in William Penn’s original plan for Philadelphia, devised in 1682. While Logan Square Park is rather simple in stature, both tourists and residents flock to this space. In the center of the park is the ornate Swann Memorial Fountain, a large centerpiece that represents the region’s major waterways. The famous Ben Franklin Parkway circles around the square, bringing in constant buzz and activity. This major thoroughfare makes sightseeing easy for all, allowing residents and tourists to hit many of Philadelphia’s finest cultural locations.
Excitement on The Ben Franklin Parkway
Facing each other on both ends of the parkway are City Hall and the Philadelphia Art Museum, located only a 30-minute walk away from each other. In between these two attractions lies endless options for fun and learning, such as the Franklin Institute, Academy of Natural Sciences, Rodin Museum, the Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, the Oval (a summer pop-up park), and the Philadelphia Free Library (and that’s not even all of them!). The Parkway is also home to the city’s largest annual events, such as the Welcome America Fourth of July celebration and the Thanksgiving Day Parade.
