Since William Penn's founding of Philadelphia as a 'greene countrie towne', thousands of acres of public gardens and arboretums have spawned in and around the city. Fairmont Park is the largest in any American city; even Philadelphia's zoo is a splendid garden and arboretum. Many gardens in the region were first cultivated by early Quakers and include historic, restored homes dating to the early 1700s.
