"Take a dip in their pool"

Pennypack Woods is a neighborhood located in Northeast Philadelphia and adjacent to the Pennypack Park neighborhood. The neighborhood offers a taste of both city and suburban life and is a predominantly a residential area that is home to African Americans, Polish Americans, Irish Americans and Hispanics.
The area features an eclectic selection of housing opportunities including apartments, condos, row homes, single-family homes and double-family homes. Some of the houses are set back from the road and offer large front yards, perfect for families with young children.
One of the biggest features of the area is Pennypack Park. Pennypack Park is one of the biggest municipal parks in Philadelphia and features hiking and biking trails as well as bridle paths for horseback riding. Pennypack Creek runs through the park and Pennypack Woods, which the neighborhood is named after, surrounds the park.
Another draw of the area is the Pennypack Woods Swim Club which offers a spacious community swimming for members to swim in to enjoy some relief from the scorching summer heat.
Pennypack Woods is a quiet neighborhood that features a taste of suburban living. It is spread out and there aren’t many shops, so you need a car to get around.
