Penn Treaty Park

Historic Site

blank dot

Penn Treaty Park covers seven acres of Delaware River waterfront located just off North Delaware Avenue. The park features open green space, picnic areas, a playground, a spectacular view of the Ben Franklin Bridge, and many seasonal community events. The local legend is that William Penn and a Lenape clan entered into a peace agreement under an elm tree in the center of the park. That original "treaty elm" has since been replaced, but the event is commemorated with an obelisk and plaque.
