Description
At the midpoint on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway between
City Hall and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Sister Cities
Park adds a picturesque swath of green to the heart of
Philadelphia’s notable arts and cultural district. From here,
panoramic views bring skyscrapers, historic cathedrals and
museums into harmony, while the Sister Cities fountain,
a unique representation of the world with Philadelphia at
its center, is close enough for adults to touch and children
to run through. The fountain’s ten geyser-like spouts
symbolize our ten sister cities, each positioned according to
its global relationship to Philadelphia.
The Park also offers a Children’s Discovery Garden at the
north end, with a children’s wading pool in warm weather
months and an interactive play area when the weather
turns cool.
The charm of Sister Cities Park lends itself to everything
from children’s birthday parties to wedding receptions and
rehearsal dinners, from uncommon celebrations
to corporate teambuilding exercises. Whatever the
occasion, consider this the quintessential spot for an
event on the Parkway.
