Parks and Playgrounds



Fairmount Park
The world's largest landscaped urban park, Fairmount is accessible to all Philadelphians;
in fact, no city resident lives more than a mile from one of the 65 neighborhood parks that form part of Fairmount. From strolling by Boathouse Row to rollerblading, playing Frisbee, or simply running around, this is an ideal location for outdoor activities.


Fitler Square
There is no actual playground, but many parents gather in the late afternoon around the turtles.  Babies and kids like to bring chalk and color on the bricks as well as run around the grassy areas.

Rittenhouse Square
There is no actual playground, but parents with small children tend to gather around the goat statue and at the pool.  The pool is drained in the fall and serves as a HUGE play area for kids.
