Outdoor Spaces & Parks

Rittenhouse Square

Such a beautiful city deserves to be enjoyed in the sunshine! Philadelphia offers a variety of outdoor spaces and parks for you to get your dose of nature. Here are just a few of our PHL parking company’s favorite areas:

Rittenhouse Square

Rittenhouse Square is a seven-acre park developed by William Penn. It’s considered the city’s most popular town square where visitors and locals can take a stroll through the trees, set up a picnic in the grass, relax on one of the many benches, or admire the park’s sculptures or reflecting pool. The beautiful green area is surrounded by charming townhouses, delicious eateries, jewelry stores, retail locations, spas, churches, and more. This gives you the opportunity to relax after shopping, enjoying a meal, or simply spending a day in the city. The park is also a popular spot for recreational activities like jogging, dog-walking, frisbee, and more.

Fairmount Park

Located in western Philadelphia and split by the Schuylkill River, Fairmount Park is one of the largest urban green areas in the country. In fact, our PHL parking company is proud to say the park offers more than 14 square miles of green space. Here, you can find bike trails, hiking trails, concert spaces, woodlands, riverfront areas, horseback riding trails, picnic spaces, and more. For a taste of art, visit one of the many public art examples throughout the area and for a taste of history, hop on the Victorian-style trolley that offers tours of the area’s Colonial mansions. You’ll also find the Philadelphia Zoo (the oldest zoo in the country) on the west side of the park.

Penn’s Landing

If you’re looking for an outdoor space where something is always happening, head to Penn’s Landing. This waterfront area sits on the edge of Center City along the Delaware River and offers beautiful panoramic views of the Philadelphia skyline, the river, and the Benjamin Franklin Bridge. Throughout the year, locals and visitors can enjoy events, concerts, attractions, classes, festivals, and more designed for people of all ages. The area is also home to the Independence Seaport Museum (which explores Philadelphia’s maritime heritage) and an area where individuals can hop on the RiverLink Ferry for a quick tour of the Delaware River area.
