Penn Treaty Park covers seven acres of stunning waterfront real estate located just off N. Delaware Avenue at the corner of E. Columbia Ave. and Beach Street. The park features open green space, picnic areas, a playground, a spectacular view of the Ben Franklin Bridge, and many seasonal community events.Legend has it that William Penn and a local 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 legendary event is commemorated with an obelisk and plaque.
