About the Park 

Dilworth Park, on the west side of Philadelphia's City Hall, is a beautifully appointed park with an interactive fountain, lush lawn and tree grove seating areas, which features a café. The fountain, open in the warmer months, transforms into an ice skating rink each winter. Both are favorite activities for kids and adults alike. Spring through fall the park is bustling with people enjoying the many activities happening all week long. Festivals, live musical and arts and culture performances, and happy hour specials bring an audience to the park all hours of the day and night. Plus, you can stay connected with free WiFi at Dilworth Park. And all of this activity is taking place above a major transit hub. For information about all events taking place at Dilworth Park, you can stop by the information kiosk at the park or visit our CCD Parks Event Calendar page.

Dilworth Park was completely renovated and is now managed by the Center City District through a long-term lease with the City of Philadelphia. The park was transformed from an inaccessible, multi-level, hard-surface plaza into a sustainable, well-maintained, green public space without stairs or barriers from the street. For an overview of the goals and mission of the park, click here.

As Philadelphia’s Center Square, it was designed as a high-quality gateway to public transit and as a civic place with on-going programming, amenities, and activities that benefit the public and support the mission of the park. The renovated Dilworth Park now has over 20,000 square feet of useable area resulting in an expanded over 120,000-square-foot public space. The underground was dramatically improved as a new transit gateway, providing entrances to Broad Street and Market Street subways and the trolley lines. New elevators made the transit levels accessible.
