Gardens of Philadelphia
Gardens and Arboretums of the City and Delaware Valley
  • Stunning, beautiful, and artistic full-color photography
  • Location and detailed site information with common and Latin names of all species photographed Since William Penn's founding of Philadelphia as a "greene countrie towne," thousands of acres of public gardens and arboretums have spawned in and around the city. Fairmont Park is the largest in any American city; even Philadelphia's zoo is a splendid garden and arboretum. Many gardens in the region were first cultivated by early Quakers and include historic, restored homes dating to the early 1700s. About the Author:
    John Hope provides easy-to-understand plant and environment details for the pro and amateur. His other books include Pennsylvania's Scenic Route 6 and Westsylvania Heritage Trail.
