  • The monument is located along the front North. Very nice and full of meaning. Worth a stop

  • If you are in Philadelphia, you MUST see this amazing sculptor of history. Words cannot describe the feelings you will have when you take it in. Whether Irish or not, you will see history, death, sick...  more »
  • In one corner of the Park at the back of the Penn's Landing on the Delaware River. While showing the facial expressions of suffering civilians, they're facing something (or have been at the mercy of?) Draws a striking appearance.

  • This tribute park includes both tributes to those from Irish and Scottish immigrants. It’s fitting since the sculptor who did the William Penn statue on top of city hall building was of Scottish decent. The park and presentation of art/statues is very well done. Is located next to a small little dog park and is very well located being close to River Rink park and City Tavern and entrance into historical district of Philadelphia. It’s worth a quick walk through the park if you are on the area.
  • This memorial was well maintained and quite striking. In addition to the statue, plaques contained information about Irish immigration, the Great Famine and other historical details. The Memorial is well placed next to the river allowing for the open river to the East and Center City to the West. However, it's not as serene because of the nearby highways. Anyone with Irish ancestry should stop by to pay a moment of respect.
  • Larger than life monument and very moving. Highly recommended for anyone of Irish decent.
  • A simple monument with a powerful message and detailed imagery.
  • Some very cool and meaningful statues. Worth a visit if you're down by the Delaware River.
