Central Green at the Navy Yard
Central Green, Rouse Blvd, Philadelphia, PA 19112
Central Green is a 4.5-acre park at the heart of the Navy Yard surrounded by office buildings. The park’s design relies on circles as the dominant design motif to highlight the park’s different spaces, with different circles to feature different uses such as a fitness station, amphitheater, sun lawn, and a bio basin for storm water. The design plan also includes a track around the rim of the park lined with wood and metal lounge chairs and benches and paths leading to the park’s interior. The park includes mature landscaping housing 304 trees, 42 types of groundcover, 10,105 shrubs, and more than 13,600 bulbs.
