“This is a corner of heaven here,”
wrote American poet Gerald Stern in his poem In Carpenter’s Woods. And indeed it is!

Carpenter’s Woods, part of Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park system, is located in the northwestern part of the city. Preserved from development in 1916 specifically because of its importance to a wide variety of resident and migratory bird species, Carpenter’s Woods is part of a global network of places recognized by the National Audubon Society and BirdLife International for its value to bird conservation.

Besides woodpeckers and warblers, Carpenter’s Woods is a nature-lover’s delight, filled with toads and butterflies, wild mushrooms and skunk cabbage, and so much more. Active during all seasons, you can enjoy walking the trails, sledding, or, as Gerald Stern wrote, just laying “for hours with my eyes closed listening to the great sounds.”
