Franklin Square, one of five public squares laid out by William Penn in his original plan for Philadelphia, offers a refreshing, urban green space with a ton of awesome activities within its eight-acre grounds.

Originally named “North East Publick Square,” the park was renamed in honor of Benjamin Franklin in 1825.
