One of the five original open-space parks designed by William Penn in the 17th century, Rittenhouse Square provides an oasis in the heart of the city. Mature trees shade wide paved paths leading to sprawling green lawns, fountains, and sculptures. Take a leisurely stroll, or sit at one of the park benches for a picnic retreat. Surrounding the square is a collection of upscale shopping avenues, trendy residential areas, and plenty of restaurants. Settle in with a refreshing drink and enjoy a perfect vantage point for people-watching.

  • Rittenhouse Square is one of the most peaceful areas in Center City. In some ways, it is more relaxing in the winter as there are very few people in the park. A wonderful place to walk after a meal!
