Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park focuses on the more than four thousand acres of land along the east and west banks of the Schuylkill River and into parts of the Wissahickon Valley that comprise one of the world’s largest urban parks. Historically and architecturally important structures and buildings are chronicled, such as the famous waterworks, the many bridges that span the park’s waterways, the Zoological Gardens, and Boathouse Row. Numerous fountains, monuments, and artistic sculptures that dot the landscape are also documented. Rich in natural beauty, the park’s meadows, gardens, lush vegetation, rugged ravines, and wooded areas will capture the eye. Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park is a nostalgic view of the park as it was enjoyed by visitors during the first quarter of the twentieth century.
