Convenient location on the edge of Philly with unexpected access to nature.

  • Commuter

  • Boating
  • Parks
  • Public Transportation

Essington is a small enclave twenty minutes southwest of downtown Philadelphia, right next to the airport. Interstate 95 and bus service give residents easy access to all of the Philadelphia area, making Essington apartments convenient for commuters on a budget.

While it is definitely a solidly urban residential community, residents have a surprisingly high level of access to nature. Boating on the Delaware River is quite popular, with Little Tinicum Island Natural Area providing a secluded area rip for exploration. A bit easier to reach is the network of trails through the expansive John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge.
