Pretty New Park Now Open at HUP

Once a parking lot, now a green space

If you’ve been over to the Hospital at the University of Pennsylvania lately, you may have noticed a new park near the entrance at 34th and Spruce. Kane Park officially opened for business last month, giving hospital employees and visitors a pretty new place to catch some fresh air.

The half-acre, triangle-shaped park is a definite improvement over what used to occupy the space: an asphalt parking lot. The park features benches, lights, flowers and, of course, grass for picnics. Check out more photos here.
