Neighborhood Guide for Pennsport

Boarded by the Delaware River, 4th Street, Washington Avenue, and Snyder Avenue, Pennsport is one of Philly’s historic neighborhoods, decorated with its own unique background.

What was once a predominantly blue-collar neighborhood and Mummers’ clubhouses is now enjoying its own revitalization with new small businesses and restaurants.

But just because things are changing, does not mean the neighborhood has forgotten its roots. There are so many benefits to buying a Pennsport luxury home.

Pennsport Happenings and History

In the 17th century, Swedish immigrants came to what is now Philadelphia to settle, bringing with them their own customs and traditions. As such, Mummery was introduced. One practice involves family and friends visiting one another following the Christmas holiday, dressed in elaborate costumes similar to a masquerade.

In modern day, the Mummers’ parade continues to draw crowds, while participants spend hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars on elaborate costumes, all bedazzled in sequins, glitter, and mystery of these unique guests.

Today, this event is still held on New Year’s Day each year, with the exception of weather and global health related cancellations.

Things To Do

While the Mummers’ parade is something you won’t want to miss, there is plenty more to see and do in Pennsport throughout the year. If you buy a Pennsport home, here are just a few of the places you’ll have close to home.

  • Shopping: Whether you want to enjoy big box stores like Home Depot, Lowe’s, Pier 1 Imports, and Ikea, or perhaps you want to support local boutiques, there is plenty of shopping to be done in and around Pennsport. Be sure to visit Pennsport Plaza, Columbus Commons, and take a short trip to Philadelphia’s fashion district.
  • Dining: After a long day of work–or play– it’s time to refuel! Visit the home of Federal Donuts or try local bars and gastropubs for a meal you won’t soon forget. For dining you can find across the country, there are also tons of chain restaurants.
  • Explore: Weekends call for adventure. Visit the Washington Avenue Pier to dip your toes into the river, or enjoy the sights and sounds. Pier 68 also offers views of the river while connecting you back to shopping centers and plenty of activities in Pennsport.

Dickinson Square Park

Looking to take a break and reconnect with nature? The classic, turn of the century designed Dickinson Square Park is a part of the neighborhood you won’t want to miss.

Situated on three acres, this open space boasts safety and tranquility, with plenty to do. The park features several basketball courts, swing sets, jungle gym equipment, and large shade trees. So if you want to play or enjoy the sunshine, this family-friendly park is ready for your relaxation needs just a short walk from your Pennsport luxury home.

Bartram’s Garden

For even more exploration and beauty, Bartram’s Garden is a 50-acre public garden and National Historic Landmark. Part of Lenape territory, it sits on the banks of the Schuylkill River. Those who love it know Bartram’s Garden as a venue for art or an outdoor classroom for the student in all of us. There are programs offered year round.
