Home in Cedar Park
Cedar Park is a neighborhood located in the West Philadelphia section of Philadelphiamarker, Pennsylvaniamarker. It was built as a streetcar suburb for Center Citymarker between 1850 and 1910. It is a racially and ethnically diverse part of the city, with much of the historic architecture preserved. Cedar Park is located in the western portion of the larger University Citymarker neighborhood.

Originally outlying farmland, with the construction of trolley lines linking West Philadelphia to Center City in the late 1800s, Cedar Park soon developed into a suburb of Philadelphia marked by Queen Anne-style architecture. Since about 2000, the neighborhood has been undergoing gentrification stimulated by the University of Pennsylvaniamarker's redevelopment plan for West Philadelphia. There is a distinct progressive-politics mien to the neighborhood and a sizable African immigrant community located along and near Baltimore Avenue between 46th and 49th Streets.

The neighborhood stretches north to Larchwood Ave., south to Kingsessing Ave., east to 46th Street, and west to 52nd Street.
