Nea Filadelfeia or Nea Filadelfia (meaning New Philadelphia) is a suburb in the northern part of Athens, Greece. The suburb was settled by Greek refugees from Anatolia (specifically the region around the ancient city of Philadelphia) after the Greco-Turkish War.

The area was made up of farmlands and forests. The forests have been partially saved in the many squares and in the several parks today. In the early to mid-20th century, urban development replaced much of the farmlands. Today, much of the municipality is urbanized while the businesses are along the main roads. Many of the trees are aligned with the streets and in the squares and parks of Nea Filadelfeia. The biggest park to be found is called Alsos Neas Filadelfias, which covers almost 480 square meters of land and hosts many different trees. In the past it used to be a zoo as well as a park.
