About the Park

"The transformation of this tiny shard of land amounts to a small miracle... Every Philadelphia neighborhood should have a park as good as Sister Cities."
-- Inga Saffron, The Philadelphia Inquirer


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 10 geyser-like spouts mark our 10 sister cities, each positioned according to its global relationship to Philadelphia.


Sister Cities Park is managed and maintained by the Center City District.
