Dilworth Park

Dilworth Park, on the west side of City Hall, is an exceptional civic space, a gateway to transit and a sustainable centerpiece that links Philadelphia’s primary employment, hospitality, cultural and retail districts. Active throughout the year, Dilworth Park has quickly become a favorite meeting place for friends and family to enjoy winter ice skating, summer concerts, and special events all year long.

Sister Cities Park

This award-winning park has quickly become every child’s dream play space and the kind of public amenity every neighborhood craves. On Logan Square with sweeping views of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Sister Cities Park invites you to run through its iconic fountain, grab a sandwich at Logan Square Café, or romp through the children’s discovery garden.

John F. Collins Park

A tribute to its designer, this remarkable pocket park is a surprise to all who step inside.  Passing through amazingly sculpted gates, the park is lush with native vegetation and a gurgling fountain.  Its peacefulness is a welcome contrast to the bustling streets beyond and the perfect place for special events.  To help maintain this quiet oasis, contact Katie Andrews at 215.440.5529 or

Center City District’s first park renovation is thriving with visitors from nearby office and residential buildings. Cret Park is a beautifully landscaped plaza along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and a great place to relax and take a break from the busy work day.
