Girard Park – S 21st St & W Shunk St, Philadelphia, PA 19145. It’s pretty hard to imagine that South Philadelphia once consisted of rich, fertile farmland, but such was the case in the waning days of the 18th century, when Stephen Girard established his 580 acre farm in the area that is today’s 21st and Shunk Streets. The house still stands in a lovely park that bears his name, surrounded by gorgeous, giant trees and quirky, splotchy grass. Great spot for a bike ride.
