7th Street Park is located on 7th Street between Spring Garden and Bushkill Streets. The lot-sized park is mostly lawn with a few large shade trees. A narrow asphalt path leads up the steep front slope and ends at a flat lawn area towards the back of the park. The open lawn creates an inviting place for children to play.

Park Size: 7th Street Park is the second smallest of the pocket parks at only 3,890 square feet. That is about 3/4 the size of an NBA basketball court or approximately the size of an IMAX screen laid on its side.

    We live across from the park and my kids use this almost daily, as do the {hidden}’s kids next to the park and {hidden}’s kids at the back. We are a fairly tight knit community around here. Everyone I have spoken to about this would like the park to mostly remain an open space. It would be great to remove the old lights, old signs, electric service pole and sawn off BBQ stands that stick 2″ out of the ground – there are about 16 in total. Also remove the tree stump. I believe the trees are black walnut and have been severely attacked by lantern fly this year – we did our best to protect them with duct tape. We are happy to help maintain this park and have offered to do so in the past to Carl.

    We would LOVE a 4 way stop sign at N 7th and Spring Garden to slow traffic – we contacted Sal about this years ago but got nowhere.

    Also, I think the {hidden}’s property line (104) extends a few feet from the side of their house.

    I agree with Thomas, clean it up. Maybe add a bench in the back but not much else. Keeping this open is key.

    Also a stop sign on that corner would be grand.
