Owner description: People-watching is the favorite pastime at this busting park, with loads of benches to accommodate weary pedestrians.

Walked around here for quite some time. Nice park lots of dog walkers. It was late fall and the autumn colours were amazing. Very nice there

This square is a nice place to stop and relax, people watch, eat a bite or watch one of the various street performers. The gardens are well cared for, lots of benches and very central to all that's going on in the neighborhood.

I visited this public square/park after a decade hiatus, and wow, what a difference! Lining the outside of the square were cafes and restaurants with outdoor seating filled with diners. Along the outside were walkers and cyclists meandering among city destinations. Inside the park were lots of people socializing, chatting on the many benches, and even musicians playing restrained but quality music -- no load boomboxes -- probably from the famed Curtis School of Music which is on the east side of the square.

Rittenhouse square is a nice park just a short walk from City Hall. Steeped in history this location is a must see for all those American history buffs who visit Philly!!

My wife and I walked through the park on a Saturday morning. It is not a very large park, one block by one block in size. It was clean and well-maintained. Vendors were setting up all along the perimeter selling flowers, vegetables, fruit, wine, candy, etc. The square was bustling with walkers, dog walkers, couples, and families. It was a great place to take a morning stroll and to grab a coffee at one of the cafe's on an adjecent street surrounding the park.
