About The Walnut Hill Neighborhood

The Walnut Hill Neighborhood

The Enterprise Center’s main office is located in the West Philadelphia neighborhood of Walnut Hill, and the organization has maintained a longstanding relationship with the neighborhood and the Walnut Hill Community Association (WHCA). The boundaries for Walnut Hill are 45th Street to the east, 52nd Street to the west, Market Street to the north, and Spruce Street to the south.

The relationship between The Enterprise Center CDC and the WHCA has led to many impactful projects and programs, including:

  • Developing the first Walnut Hill Neighborhood Plan in 2007, and implementing portions of this plan over the next several years;
  • Forming the Walnut Hill Street Team that evolved into the Community Leaders, an award-winning program for community engagement and resident leadership development;
  • Renovating the Walnut Hill Community Playground in 2009;
  • Creating the Walnut Hill Community Farm, beginning in 2010;
  • Revising the neighborhood plan to create an updated plan, finalized in 2016, that will guide community and economic development initiatives in Walnut Hill over the next five years.
