Pastorius Park is a 16-acre (6.5-ha) park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States. It is maintained by the Fairmount Park Commission. Established in 1915, the park was named in honor of Francis Pastorius, a leader of early German immigrants to the area. It is located in the Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia, at Lincoln Drive and Abington Avenue. The park includes a pond and an amphitheater.[1]

The Chestnut Hill Community Association sponsors evening concerts at the park during the summer.[2]
