Another Man's Garden
Philadelphia's Magic Gardens8
Why locals love it
The Philadelphia Magic Gardens, at 3000 sq. feet, is the largest work of mosaic artist Isaiah Zagar. Visitors can get lost in the labyrinth of stairwells, corridors, and secret passageways that fill the garden.
Why you should visit it
Zagar's mosaic art can be seen covering vast swaths of South Philadelphia walls and buildings, but nowhere is his work and style more prominent than the Magic Gardens. The MG also hosts exhibitions from international artists in their indoor gallery.
The Magic Gardens are available to rent for private events, or for a nominal fee, you can do like this reviewer & shoot your wedding photos there!
