Packer Park is Trending UP!

pic1Driving through Packer Park this morning I couldn’t help but notice yet another third story addition being added!!

This particular one was located at 3137 Croatan Place but is really only one of many we have spotted all over the neighborhood!

In addition to all of the additions being added, it seems that more and more three story homes are being built in general in the area. We also spotted a few others on Forrestal just the other day!

It is clear that Packer Park is a neighborhood filled with families that want to stay. Unlike so many of the other Center City and surrounding neighborhoods, Packer Park is filled with families that would rather stay in the home they love, in the area they know, and expand the size of the current home to fit their growing families! Most Center City neighborhoods are filled with mostly young professionals and very few children, Packer Park is mostly made up of large families with many children!

Packer Park has seen a lot of new activity this year, from the New Construction at Geary Estates (10 New Construction homes with finished basements, which sold out in record time due to the high demand) to these new additions being added all over!! Rumor has it that another exciting project is heading to the neighborhood and bringing with it 20 to 30 new construction homes by the end of 2015! Stay tuned for more info on that!

Packer Park Perk #2: Golf, Fishing and Outdoor Activities!!

3One of Packer Park’s highly underrated attractions is its super close proximity to FDR Park in South Philadelphia.

When we sell homes in the area to out-of-town Buyers they are blown away by the underused green oasis within walking distance to our Neighborhood. It is definitely a huge selling point to be able to bike, jog, walk and golf nearby. In addition buyers love that the baseball/softball fields, kids playground, skateboard park, fishing, picnic & tennis areas, dog walking, nature walks and so much more are all within a couple of blocks of Packer Park!

Which other neighborhood in the city can boast that it is located two blocks away from a 348 Acre urban Oasis with a Golf course, about 125 acres of buildings, picnic areas, pathways for walking, landscaped architecture, and a variety of recreation areas placed within about 77 acres of natural lands including ponds and lagoons?

Bordered by the South Philadelphia Sports Complex on South Broad Street, Interstate highway-95/Philadelphia Naval Yard and Pattison Avenue/ Packer Park residential neighborhood. Many Philadelphians enjoy it as a green “Oasis” for a variety of recreational activities.

2The park was built to the design of Olmsted Brothers, the firm of Frederick Law Olmsted and John Charles Olmsted in the early 1900’s. The parkland was reclaimed mostly from marshlands of Greenwhich Island one of several islands in the area created by river channels present in the 1700 and 1800’s. The use of the park for the Sesquicentennial Exposition in 1926 and subsequent improvements have moderately changed the original design, keeping the main character of the park west of Broad Street. The original plan of the Olmsted Brothers still remains highly visible and significant west of Broad Street. The official name was changed from League Island Park to Franklin Delano Roosevelt Park in the late 1940s and a golf course was constructed. The park’s boathouse, gazebo and American Swedish Historical Museum are reminders of the 1926 Exposition. In 2000, the park was added to the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places.
