Dilworth Park

The city's lively centerpiece, with a cafe, lush lawn, tree groves, and a fountain, which converts into an ice skating rink in winter. As Philadelphia’s Center Square, it is designed as a high-quality gateway to public transit and as a civic place with on-going programming, amenities, and activities that benefit the public and support the mission of the park.

How to get there

It is SO easy to get here on SEPTA. Hop SEPTA's Market-Frankford Line or Trolley Routes 10,11,13,34, or 36 to 15th Street Station. You can also hop the Broad Street Line to City Hall Station. If riding a Bus is more your style, Routes 4, 16, 17, 27, 31, 32, 33, 38, 44, 62, 78, 124 & 125 all drop you within a block or two of the park.

Things To Do

Dilworth Park is a beautifully appointed park with an interactive fountain, lush lawn and tree grove seating areas, which features a café. The fountain, open in the warmer months, transforms into an ice skating rink each winter. Both are favorite activities for kids and adults alike. Spring through fall the park is bustling with people enjoying the many activities happening all week long. Festivals, live musical performances, outdoor movie screenings, and happy hour specials bring an audience to the park at all hours of the day and night. Plus, you can stay connected with free XFINITY WiFi at Dilworth Park. And all of this activity is taking place above a major transit hub.
