This large expanse of grasslands, recreational facilities, streams and historical structures borders the northwest side of Philadelphia, just behind the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The 8,700 acre ground include day camps, playgrounds, sporting fields, basketball courts and hiking trails. Special events include running events, bicycle and antique car races, walk-a-thons, regattas and small and large picnics, including the Greek Picnic with over 100,000 participants annually from around the country. Tours are available of the historic mansions in the park.
