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

Great park for the kids. My toddler had a blast playing with the various water features. There is even space to have a picnic. Could use a better bathroom and an addition of a changing room would be nice.

A wonderful place to bring children. There's a Cafe, a bathroom with a changing station, a sprinkler and gated area with a small pool surrounded by trees, additional sprinklers and a large hammock. Parking isn't too much of a hassle as spots are often opening up on the parkway, however if you can avoid driving down and either walking or using Septa it may save having to drive around until something opens up.. I would suggest this place 1000 times over for parents looking for a nice comfortable place to cool off

A cool place on the way from Art museum to Love park. The main attraction is the fountain and AMOR statue shown in the pictures below. One can get inside the fountain and enjoy. Also there is a small fountain for kids to enjoy across the street. Paid parking is available nearby. Sister park cafe is also located in the kids park.

A hidden gem that is worth the visit. Its mostly for kids but adults can do it as well. It's like walking through a small jungle in the middle of the city. The landscape was tastefully done and keeps the kids engaged in scenery.

Beautiful spot to catch up with family, friends or colleagues. It's relaxing, peacefull & amazing. There's a cafe in site, a TGIF across the street and a Subway two blocks away. If you're looking for a spot to eat. Has a clear view of the Benjamin Parkway, all the way to the Museum of Arts.
