Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

This square, one of William Penn’s original five open-space parks, underwent a radical transformation in 2006 when Historic Philadelphia Inc. restored it from a creepy spot to be avoided into a child’s absolute, must-see destination. The beautiful fountain at its center has been restored, a delightful carousel spins and projects happy music, while a Philly-landmark-themed miniature golf course, a modern playground and a gourmet burger spot all beckon.
