Flexible Play Area

Located on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway at Logan Square in front of Philadelphia’s Cathedral Basilica, Sister Cities Park has earned recognition as one of the nation’s leading multi-generational parks, attracting families with children, seniors, local workers and visitors to nearby cultural institutions. The park, created in 2012 by the Center City District (CCD), was transformed from a forgotten to a lively space by adding a playful fountain for children, a Discovery Garden, wading pond, mobile ‘library,’ café and lawn. The CCD offers a variety of diverse activities in the park, from summer children’s literacy programs to happy hours and family events that attract an average of 28,500 visitors in warmer months. Next year, the CCD plans to expand the Discovery Garden with more amenities and increased opportunities for playful learning, while retaining the park's intimate feel.
