Rittenhouse Square

Activity Overview

Rittenhouse Square is a beautiful public park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania that was one of the original five parks designed in the city. The heart of the Rittenhouse neighborhood, this historic park is a popular place to enjoy a family picnic in the shade or go for a relaxing stroll through the trees. It is also known for its wonderful selection of public artwork, including a number of impressive sculptures and a gorgeous reflecting pool.

  • As you explore the park, look for other popular sculptures of animals, including Billy, a bronze billy goat, and an impressive piece by artist Paul Manship that depicts a young girl carrying a duck.
