Fodor's Review

This formerly run-down park marking the city's connections with Florence, Italy; Tel Aviv, Israel; and eight other "sister cities" has been transformed to better suit its prime location near Logan Circle, the Four Seasons Hotel, and the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul. Scheduled to be completed by the end of 2011, the park features a year-round café, and an extensive play area for kids inspired by the local Wissahickon watershed that features a rock-climbing area and sailboat pond.
