ABOUT:

Gorgas Park is located in Roxborough at the corner of Ridge Avenue and Hermitage St. The park is named for the Gorgas Family who settled in the area toward the end of the 17th Century. In 1853, The Fairmount Park Commission bought the property, tore down the mills which were built and run by the family, but retained the homestead and the barn, which existed on the property.

The Friends of Gorgas Park started to care for the park in the spring of 1996, pruning many of the park's overhanging trees and removing damaged ones. Since then, the park is home to over 250 trees and award-winning gardens, and has been transformed in to the clean, safe park you see today.
