"Near the colleges"

Southwest Cedar Park is a neighborhood located in West Philadelphia. It is bound by Larchwood Avenue, 52nd Street and 46th Street.
It is an extremely ethnically diverse part of the city and is home to low income African Americans, Hispanics and whites. More and more students are moving to the area because of the affordable housing options and close proximity to Drexel and University of Pennsylvania.
Southwest Cedar Park features some of the most unique architecture in Philadelphia. A lot of the houses were originally built as family homes for rich people who wanted to live on the outskirts of the city in the early 1800’s. Since then, these elaborately structured homes have been split up into multiple apartment units. Most of the buildings still offer huge front porches and large bay windows where residents enjoy sitting during the warm months.
Nightlife is limited in Southwest Cedar Park, but there are a few hole-in-the-wall bars to discover if you look hard enough. The area is spread out and located far away from Center City, so it is recommended that you invest in a car or bike. Public transportation is relatively easy to navigate and includes trolleys and SEPTA.
