About Us


The Garden Court Community Association (GCCA) is an organization of individuals and families living and working in the Garden Court neighborhood in West Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. For over 50 years, GCCA has provided our neighbors the opportunity to come together to be a positive force for our community and the city at large. Through events, advocacy, and community service, we are building a community open to all.   

Our boundaries are 45th Street to the east, 52nd Street to the west, Locust St. to the north and Cedar Avenue to the south. We are a 501(c)3 and a Registered Community Association (RCO) with the City of Philadelphia.
