The Urban Arboretum of University City is a collection of trees and shrubs that grow along the streets and in the public green spaces of an area of Philadelphia west of the Schuylkill River to 52nd Street. Its botanical complexity mirrors the diversity - of neighborhoods, or architecture and of peoples - of University City.

To see some of what grows here, visit the locations marked on the map to begin to experience a few of the "many kinds of trees and shrubs" available for exhibition, study and enjoyment here. Come back soon to see more specimens appear on the map of this very special urban "public park."
