Where exactly is the "Centennial District?"

Well for starters, it's in Philadelphia.

More specifically, it's mostly located within West Fairmount Park. Please check out this map for a better sense of location.

The Fairmount Park Conservancy is in the process of embarking on a huge, $300 Million plan to improve this part of the park system. The completion date has been targeted for 2026. It may seem like a while from now, but the improvements will be significant.

Some of the goals for the project include:

  • $100M in infrastructure improvements
  • $200M in new park venues
  • Establish a new transit line within the district
  • Make the district more navigable and accessible

Feel free to read more about the project here.
