One of five squares William Penn placed in his original design, this park is now a family-friendly destination. There are two modern playgrounds (for younger and older kids) open year-round. From April through December the square also features a carousel; a food stand with burgers, salads, shakes, and ice cream operated by famed local restaurateur Stephen Starr; and an 18-hole miniature-golf course, whose holes boast scale models of Independence Hall, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Ben Franklin Bridge, and other local landmarks. While the park remains open year-round, the attractions are closed in January and February.
