About the Park  

Dilworth Park, on the west side of Philadelphia's City Hall, was completely renovated and is now managed by the Center City District through a long-term lease with the City of Philadelphia. As Philadelphia’s Center Square, it is 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. For an overview of the goals and mission of the park, click here.

Dilworth Park 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 performances, outdoor movie screenings, and happy hour specials bring an audience to the park at all hours of the day and night. Plus, you can stay connected with free XFINITY WiFi at Dilworth Park. And all of this activity is taking place above a major transit hub.

Dilworth Park has been transformed from an inaccessible, multi-level, hard-surface plaza into a sustainable, well-maintained, green public space without stairs or barriers from the street. By covering existing openings and removing unnecessary walls, steps and barriers, the renovated Dilworth Park now has 20,571 square feet of new useable area (an increase of 21%) resulting in an expanded 120,557-square-foot public space. The underground has been dramatically improved as a new transit gateway, providing entrances to Broad Street and Market Street subways and the trolley lines. New elevators make the transit levels accessible for the first time. For information about all events taking place at Dilworth Park, you can stop by the Information Booth at the park.
