Center City District Parks & Plazas

Philadelphia's founder William Penn envisioned a "greene countrie towne" and Center City District (CCD) is proud to carry on his vision through the maintenance and management of open spaces throughout Center City.

Whether you live, work in or are visiting Philadelphia, we welcome you to enjoy Center City's parks and all they have to offer.

Center City Districtís Parks and Plazas are the natural choice for your next event. To plan an event contact Sarah Anello at 215.440.5507 or sanello@centercityphila.org. To learn more about rental opportunities download the CCD Parks rental brochure [PDF].
