About Palmer Park
Right in the heart of Fishtown at the intersection of Frankford Avenue, Columbia Street, and Palmer Street, Palmer Park is an oasis from the surrounding cityscape.
While it’s small in size, there’s plenty of space for dog walking, picnicking, outdoor games, and even throwing around the ole pigskin (Go Birds!). There are benches galore – both in the park and on the sidewalk adjacent to Frankford Avenue. This abundance of places to sit makes for excellent people watching.
The park is public and maintained by the Friends of Fishtown At Palmer Park, who host regular cleanup work days where locals contribute to making the park a friendlier place by raking and removing trash.
