"Germany Hill"

Germany Hill is a sliver of a neighborhood above Manayunk and below the northwest border of Philadelphia. On each side rests the Schuylkill Expressway and Henry Avenue/Fairmount Park.
Ivy Ridge Green has undertaken an initiative to clean up the Ivy Ridge Trail which runs through Germany Hill. “Two Hours on Tuesdays” started in the summer of 2010 whereby gardening tools were provided and neighbors pitched in to spruce up.

Afterwards, the crew would join at Union Jacks a local watering hole for beers and other
refreshment. These events are held every two weeks.

Residents are adamant about keeping their green space green. The community galvanized against the zoning for development of 50 new residences in the area. They view it as the last green space near Manayunk. You will need a car to get around.

Schools that service the area include: Holy Child, Academy in Manayunk, William Levering School, and Belmont Hills Elementary School. The Saul W.B. Agricultural School is a vocation technical public school.
