It might seem like summer hasn’t yet faded from Philly, but
fall is right around the corner! Along with the pumpkin spice, fall festivals
and sweaters, one of the other things autumn is known for is its beautiful
foliage, which is in full supply near your 1500 Locust apartment. Although we
are in the heart of one of the nation’s biggest cities, Philly is a haven for
lush, green spaces, which turn a range of beautiful hues as fall settles in.
If you don’t want to travel far from home in the sights of
fall, consider a stroll over to John F. Collins Park, just three blocks from
your 1500 Locust apartment. The park may be small but it delivers big when it
comes to fall foliage. While many of the parks in Center City are historic,
Collins Park is a newer green space, dating to the late 1970s. As such, it has
a more modern feel, offering a quiet, serene respite from the hustle and bustle
of the city’s business district.
Collins Park features an arrangement of stone planters, home
to seasonal buds, and towering trees that give the park its secluded vibe. It’s
a popular place for locals to relax with a book, have a quick lunch on a work
break or take a breather on a weekend run through Center City, with benches
placed throughout and several levels of stone seating. That setup makes it an
ideal spot to take in the colors of the season, as you can kick back away from
all the noise and reenergize yourself with a taste of nature—all just steps
from the door of your 1500 Locust apartment.
So grab your favorite book, stake out a spot in the park and
welcome fall at Collins Park!
