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.
Positioned between the Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, Swann Fountain and the Four Seasons Hotel. Within a short walk of The Barnes Foundation, Embassy Suites Hotel, The Franklin Institute, The Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University, Free Library of Philadelphia, Philadelphia Museum of Art and all major downtown office buildings.
