a tight-knit and up-and-coming community south of Market Street in West Philadelphia,
lies about five miles from downtown. Its namesake, Cobbs Creek Park, offers a tranquil outdoor retreat with its trails, water views, and recreational activities. The area, settled by Lenape Indians and named after Quakers, mostly consists of townhomes
and apartments that house families and students.
Cobbs Creek gives endless public transportation options. You can travel via trolley, Market-Frankford Line, or by bus to the downtown area. Students and faculty of nearby University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University appreciate the lower-cost housing options and a quick commute.
