welcome to PAUSE PARK

your new neighborhood park!

Frankford Pause Park is an 8,000-square-foot creative outdoor community space located in the heart of Frankford’s business corridor in the Lower Northeast section of Philadelphia. This urban oasis boasts a rain garden to manage stormwater runoff from the Market-Frankford Line’s elevated structure, a built-in stage for outdoor performances, tall trees, vibrant shade cloths, and string lights to brighten the area at night.  We invite you to round up your friends and family to enjoy the neighborhood park that was created with input from the community for the community!
