Brimming with unique shops and quirky eateries, bohemian Spruce Hill boasts a community that’s as welcoming as it is diverse
Choose Spruce Hill as your new home and become part of a vibrant community located in one of Philadelphia’s most exciting neighborhoods. A pedestrian’s paradise, this is an area of leafy streets, historic buildings and independent boutiques regularly interspersed with unexpected treasures. Learn about the Civil Rights Movement at the home of Philadelphian activist Paul Robeson; or get in touch with your spiritual side at Studio 34, a healing centre dedicated to yoga and meditation.
One of the city’s most ethnically diverse neighborhoods, Spruce Hill has a rich heritage rooted in the cultures of Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Head to Chestnut Street to indulge in the exotic flavours of its many specialty restaurants - including Senegalese fare at Kilimanjaro, and Kabobeesh’s authentic Pakistani favorites. Browse the shops and eateries of multicultural Baltimore Avenue to experience another sensory spectacle - especially during the much-loved Baltimore Avenue Dollar Stroll street festival.
Spruce Hill’s unique character is perhaps nowhere more obvious than at Clark Park, an amazing green space that hosts community events throughout the year. Watch local theatre companies perform live Shakespeare, browse for fresh ingredients at the weekly Farmer’s Markets, or settle in for open-air movie nights throughout the summer. Whatever the season, Clark Park is a microcosm of the creativity that makes Spruce Hill so special.
