  • Great open space in the historic districts of Philadelphia. The monument is a nice addition. The fountain is off this time of the year but it's nice during the summer. I love the leaves in the fall.
  • Washington Square is an amazing park with a rich and dark history. The park features open green spaces, a beautiful fountain, a Washington Monument, the Tomb of the Unknown Revolutionary War Soldier equipped with an eternal flame. It was also a former potter's field. It is less crowded and quieter than Rittenhouse and is also the most happening Pokemon Go stop in the city.
  • Washington Square is one of my favorite spots for a variery of activities. Depending on the time of day, you will get a different "feel" of the park, and a different crowd. In early mornings, the park is less busy, but you are likely to encounter an Asian lady meditating and/or performing what appears to be sharp martial art moves or the occasional joggers or a couple of folks getting their morning workout with their trainers. The park does get busier throughout the day, as tourists flood the area or as Pokemon trainers huddle the fountain. However, with so many benches around, you can probably still find a spot to enjoy your lunch. During this time of day you are likely to see people with strollers, dogs, more people working out, and older people socializing. Come at night, and the park gets quiet again. Sometime in spring, the empty fountain turns into a huge pillow fight spot! Come prepared.
  • Classic "Square" in Philadelphia. Very close by to Independence Mall. My only knock is that near-by food options are less plentiful than Rittenhouse Square. Lots of benches to sit on and plenty of people gazing. Take a break in olde city and visit this park!
  • Great park for sitting outside in the summer. Park benches are scarce and most are pretty dirty. Lots of dog walkers as well so it's a good park to bring your dog and socialize.
