Benjamin Rush State Park is located in the North East section of Philadelphia and is the only state park within the city boundary. The park provides the visitor with an area to enjoy the natural beauty of open spaces along with some Pennsylvania woodlands, places for study, recreation and the solace of gardening. The park offers much needed open space in this busy area. It is popular with hikers, bicyclers, birders and wildlife enthusiasts and is primarily used for passive day use activities. The park features one of the largest community gardens, a large area devoted to flying radio controlled model airplanes, multi-use trails that meander through open meadows and shady wooded areas.
