Eastern State Penitentiary Terrace Garden

22nd St. & Fairmount Ave.
Philadelphia, PA 19130

Second Saturday of the month

On the long terraces that flank the front of the Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site, a wonderful border of woody shrubs, ornamental grasses, and perennials thrives with help from loyal volunteers. The plantings provide seasonal interest year-round and serve as habitat for birds, bees, and butterflies. Please join us to help with planting, pruning, weeding, and watering.
