  • Great place to bring you kids. Mini golf, playground, picnic area, tables.....beautiful place to enjoy as a family. 
  • Nice park with a few different attractions for your family with kids. The carousel is always a great hit with kids and the mini golf with Philly's iconic places in miniature is a nice experience. The good old playground is great and it's free! Expect you will spend a few good hours here if with your kids, do plan to bring drinks and snacks unless you plan to buy it in the square!
  • My 2 year old and I had a great time! He loved the merry-go-round, the Square Burger and cake shake, and I was pleasantly surprised that there was a playground. I wish we'd gotten to go to the Chinese Lantern Festival, because the decorations were beautiful! This would be a nice place for a laid back date night. :)
  • Cute little park for the kids. Nice mini golf. Didn't have the burgers but they're supposed to be good. Clean space, laid back.
  • This is a nice little park. I run around here every once in a while. There always seems to be some event here.
  • Easy access park with a beautiful fountain, neat playground for 2-5 and 5-12 kids, mini golf, food, bathrooms, and sometimes Ben Franklin!
