Just a lovely spot. Kids playing, dogs being polite, people reading, couples strolling. Wonderful history and many of the buildings in the surrounding area have public areas that are worthy of explora... read more »

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!
This is such a great park. It's a tranquil green space amidst the historic hustle and bustle of the city. Full of families with children, nature lovers out for a stroll to bird and squirrel feed, lovers napping, readers reading, pet parents walking thier fur babies. You name it this place is quiet and full of like minds.
Beautiful park, especially in the warmer months when the fountain is on. Also, it's a great place to catch Pokemon in Pokemon Go - I caught a Ghastly, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur there yesterday.
