This historic site has been a visitor favorite since 1958. It was built in Japan and exhibited at New York's Modern Museum of Art before coming to Fairmount. Features include a traditional tea house and a picturesque pond garden with a tiered waterfall.
FDR Park/Navy Yard
Stretching over five miles, FDR Park/Navy Yard features unforgettable lake and golf course views. A statue seen at Marconi Park honors the inventor of the radio while 76ers fans enjoy passing the team's stadium.
Called the coolest shipyard in America by Politico, the Navy Yard attracts thousands of visitors every year. The area is known for its contemporary architecture, historic ships, and beautifully preserved brick buildings.
