Fairmount ParkOur historical significance in the Wissahickon dates back to 1929. We operate the historic Northwestern Equestrian Facility (NWEF) at the north end of Forbidden Drive in beautiful Fairmount Park, near the Chestnut Hill area. NWEF is a Fairmount Park property operated by Northwestern Stables, Inc., a 501c3 nonprofit organization.

We partner with mushroom growers in Delaware, Friends of the Wissahickon and other local organizations to protect and sustain the natural environment.
