Highlights the remarkable collection of trees and ornamental plants available for public enjoyment in this part of Philadelphia. The collection reflects the neighborhood's long history of gardening and its special heritage of botanical "exchanges" of American native plants and imported "exotics." That heritage continues today in an ever-evolving public landscape of remarkable diversity and a community commitment to greening and gardening.
