Pretzel Park is located in the Manayunk neighborhood of Philadelphia, and is part of the Fairmount Park system. The official name had been Manayunk Park since the parks creation in 1929. In the minds of residents and as far back as anyone can remember, Pretzel Park has been Pretzel Park. We believe the name relates to the pretzel shape of the sidewalks. That pretzel shape has been recreated with the recent park renovations which the Councilman funded. A pretzel vendor used to sell Philly Pretzels in the park so that could have also influenced the name. Now the official name of the park has come into line with the “real” name of the park.
