“Relaxing”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

I took my lunch here and sat on a bench and just relaxed for an hour.. Pretty nice place to go if your feet are hurting and you just want to take a load off for a few minutes.

“Worth seeing, but not a detour”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

Green, calm oasis worth seeing if you are nearby, if you are lucky there will be musicians busking to ad atmosphere. It is marginally the best in the centre of town.

“Awesome spot”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

In the middle of a bustling metropolis, Rittenhouse Square provides an amazing escape to read, write, relax, or eat. I loved simply sitting down and relaxing, while people watching for hours. Would highly recommend visiting her if you are in the area!
