Logan Square neighborhood is bounded by Market Street to the south, Spring Garden Street to the North, Broad Street to the east, and the Schuylkill River to the west. Logan Square contains much of Philadelphia’s Central Business District and Franklintown, an area on the north end of Logan Square. The neighborhood contains many of the city’s most recognizable institutions and cultural attractions.
Logan Square, with Swann Memorial Fountain centered and a focal point of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, was originally one of the five squares that William Penn established. At first, Penn named it Northwest Square, but it was later renamed to honor former Philadelphia mayor, James Logan.
Today, Logan Square’s real estate inventory is a mix of high rise buildings, three-story rowhomes, and new contemporary construction. The quiet area is desirable to live in due to its walkability to Center City and all the cultural attractions along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Residents can easily access the Schuylkill River Trail and all walking paths around the museums.
The neighborhood features some top attractions like the Franklin Institute, Academy of Natural Sciences, Rodin Museum, The Barnes Foundation, the Free Library of Philadelphia, and Moore College of Art and Design. The area has also seen a green space revitalization with the addition of Sister Cities Park and other smaller spaces up and down the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
The area is also well known for its yearly events like the Thanksgiving Parade, Made in America concert, Fourth of July concerts and fireworks, and the Philadelphia Marathon.
