Is This Philadelphia’s Most Underrated Park?

Franklin Square Has A Little Something for Everyone

Nestled in between Old City & Chinatown is Franklin Square Park, one of William Penn’s original squares, which underwent an extensive renovation under the Center City District just over 7 years ago.  At one time barely used; the space now offers a place for adults & children to relax & play.

Walkways are brick & shaded by mature trees.  I can’t wait to watch the leaves turn this fall.

A fountain in the center has plenty of seating around it for relaxing.  A water feature is always welcome in my eyes.

Grab a snack at Square Burger (run by Stephen Starr) & sit at the Parisian style bistro seating.  They have root beer floats.  A delicious throwback & a very kid friendly menu.

For the kids & the kid in all of us a Philadelphia attraction themed mini golf is at the northern edge of the square.

Also for the kids is a carousel & a huge playground.

Such a great park!  With the gorgeous weather Philadelphia has been enjoying this is a great place to spend an afternoon.
