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. The park now features a year-round café, plaza, and fountain and an extensive play area for kids inspired by the local Wissahickon watershed that features a rock-climbing area, discovery garden, and sailboat pond.
