Philadelphia was founded with the idea that it had to be a city with wide open spaces so that its inhabitants could enjoy their city. This included the creation of large parks . Today we are going to talk about the most important parks in the city.
The first park is Rittenhouse . Rittenhouse is surrounded by stylish cafes, boutiques and hotels. On weekends it is filled with quiet walkers with baby carriages and tourists who pose in every corner to look good in the photo.
Franklin Square , is located between 6th and 7th (very American terms) and is the ideal retreat for children. It even has a mini golf course, carousels, and several recreational areas. Logan Square , between 18th and 20th, thanks to its proximity to the library and the art museum, make it the ideal place to have a small lunch lying on its green lawn.
Fairmount Park is the "father" of all parks. Formed by a total of 9,200 hectares, it includes 63 small neighborhood parks. Its main area is in the northwestern part of the city. The beginning is on Kelly Drive near the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It is a cyclists’ paradise, as it also has a 30-mile circuit inside where you can get in shape by pedaling. It also has a horticultural center, with a greenhouse and a beautiful Japanese garden. As you head towards the Germantown area, the park turns into a dense forest, ideal for climbers and bird watchers.
