Plop down on a bench and just try to imagine a better urban sanctuary. – In Short
In the shadow of elite apartment complexes rests one of William Penn's original undeveloped commons in his plans for a "Greene Country Towne." Stroller-pushing nannies share space with Rittenhouse Row shoppers, relaxing and reading students, white-collar picnickers, the homeless, lost-in-thought chess players and musicians. They all gather to watch and be watched as they crowd the benches and lawn through almost any kind of weather.

Relax In Rittenhouse – Rittenhouse Square Park - anytime of year. Spring flowers and festivals, art shows and special events. Lunch on a bench - watching the birds, babies and people sitting on the grass. Winter lights - decorated trees....aaahhh. I worked across the street - what a lunchtime de-stresser !!!!!!

Vibrant – I love Rittenhouse Square. Although I can't really afford to live all that clsoe to it, I still make a point to visit it as often as possible. It is a beautiful park. Trees light up with lights during the holidays and fountains in the summer. there seems to be something going on at all hours. Late at night you can catch people walking their dogs. On weekends it's a mixture of old and yound, artsy and yuppie. I can walk through the park and see a couple of guys having a beer, some playing chess, couples kissing, and the whole square is surrounded by activity. Too bad Washington Sq doesn't have the same vibrancy.
