Get Directions

Penn Treaty Park, located at 1199 North Delaware Avenue at E. Columbia Avenue in the 19125, is easily accessible by nearly every type of transportation. There is limited on street parking near the park, so we would recommend taking SEPTA to Penn Treaty Park. The 43 bus will take you right to our front door. If you prefer the El, take the Market Frankford El to the Girard stop. Head East on Girard avenue to Columbia Avenue, and take a right and walk the three blocks to Penn Treaty Park; total walking time 10 minutes from the El to the park.

Also returning this year is the bicycle valet. Bike on over, and your trick ride will be secured for the day for you to retrieve on the way out.

Sadly, we cannot accommodate your private helicopter but we’ll work on it for next year!
