I love history, very humbling- the area is full of American History but we arrived to late to take any tours. Be sure to get to the area before 4 pm if you want to experience any tours.

Lovely park near old city with beautiful trees, a lovely fountain, and many park benches. Of greatest importance is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from The Revolutionary War

The square holds a Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, erected to the memory of unknown Revolutionary War soldiers. Formerly a cemetery but now a pleasant park with benches and towering trees.

I have been to Philadelphia 4 times and have never been here. Walked through at night. Very nice and very still. A worthwhile visit and a sit down rest for ones feet. Has a nice water fountain too

This is a nice park to take a break or have a pick nick in. You are still in the Old City area with plenty of trees, grass and birds.
