Shoemaker Green view of lawn in front of the building

Shoemaker Green is a public commons, a welcoming open space of lawns, tree-lined walkways, and sitting areas. This new green space is both a destination and a pedestrian route from Locust and Smith Walks in the core of campus to the historic buildings surrounding the space and further eastward to Penn Park. Shoemaker Green's sustainable site management improves water quality and minimizes runoff, reducing the effect of the urban heat island through large green areas, increasing local biodiversity, and improving the overall environment for the community.
