Created in honor of emeritus trustee Alvin Shoemaker, Penn’s newest landscape project has spread a 2.75 acre welcome mat of green at the door of the Palestra and Franklin Field. Featuring a central lawn surrounded by walkways, a rain garden, and outdoor seating, Shoemaker Green is located along 33rd Street between the David Rittenhouse Labs and the Weiss Pavilion at Franklin Field.
