The West Park District covers 6.86 square miles and has a total population of 43,354. The district’s boundaries were drawn to include West Fairmount Park, communities bordering the park, and neighborhoods located near City Avenue. The district performs dual roles in the city: it is a predominantly residential area, and its vast parkland is a major resource for recreation and open space. Major landmarks include the Philadelphia Zoo, St. Joseph’s University, and West Fairmount Park containing the Mann Center for the Performing Arts and the Please Touch Museum.
