Bartram's Garden.

It’s a home for horticulture, the first nationally landmarked landscape, and the oldest surviving botanic garden in North America.

It is Sankofa Community Farm, an ancient riverfront, a conversation on food sovereignty, high school internship programs, and a place of untold histories.

At its core, it is a public park spanning nearly 50 acres in the Kingsessing neighborhood of Southwest Philadelphia, offering peace, rest, and connection.

The Garden is operated by the non-profit John Bartram Association in partnership with the Philadelphia Department of Parks & Recreation.
