Across the street, at 20th & Arch Streets, the Gas Station Garden (maintained by the Logan Square Civic Association with PHS assistance) has turned an eyesore into a small but beautiful perennial garden. Up the block and around the corner, PHS worked with corporate neighbors, The Pew Charitable Trusts, SEPTA, and the Department of Streets to help transform the stretch of JFK Boulevard from 20th Street to 30th Street Station into a unified green gateway to Center City.

The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society created the garden for the City of Philadelphia in the early 1950s in honor of PHS’s 125th anniversary. The garden deteriorated in the 1980s, when the city cut the budget for maintenance, but in 1989 PHS joined with the Fairmount Park Commission to give the landscape a complete makeover. Spring bulbs and summer-blooming perennials and shrubs have extended the season of interest.
