Shannon Village is located in the Greenfield district for elementary school. Logan Circle, also known as Logan Square, is an open-space park in Center City Philadelphia’s northwest quadrant and one of the five original planned squares laid out on the city grid. The circle itself exists within the original bounds of the square; the names Logan Square and Logan Circle are used interchangeably when referring to the park. The park is the focal point of the eponymous neighborhood. Originally called “Northwest Square,” the park was used for public executions and burial plots until the early nineteenth century. In 1825, it was renamed Logan Square after Philadelphia statesman James Logan. Among the sites in its immediate vicinity are the Swann Memorial Fountain at the center of the circle, Free Library of Philadelphia, the Academy of Natural Sciences, the Franklin Institute, Moore College of Art and Design, and the Roman Catholic Cathedral-Basilica of Sts. Peter and Paul. Although the original bounds of the square—18th Street to the east, 20th Street to the west, Race Street to the south and Vine Street to the north—are still intact, the park today is distinguished by its circle, constructed in the 1920s as a segment of Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
