The Friends of Campbell Square are dedicated to the revitalization and preservation of the oldest public square in Port Richmond for the benefit of the entire community and future generations.

Campbell Square is located at the corner of Allegheny Avenue & Belgrade Avenue. It is a 3 acre park that lies in the heart of the Port Richmond neighborhood of Philadelphia. Established in the late 1800's as Allegheny Square, and then renamed in 1959 as Campbell Square, this charming passive park remains the central public gathering place for the community. Campbell Square is literally 5 minutes from City Hall via I-95, as it is just 4 blocks west of the highway. It also can be easily reached by bus, subway, or bike. Campbell Square is owned by the City and under the management of the Department of Parks & Recreation.
