“Tucked away in Olde City”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

This park is tucked away and next to the Ritz movie theater. It's a nice, clean park with elements of history about William Penn. It certainly is a nice surprise to come across in a crowded city. Thanks Philadelphia for having some of the best small delights.

“Facts, facts, just the facts, ma'am!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2013

I honestly enjoyed the history about William Penn from the wall of history(his life on a timeline) at the Old Town Welcome Center just as much if not more than the "bell" or the tour of the Independence Hall.
He was quite the "rebel-rouser" and a very honest man of Quaker faith and principals from this history wall account. He "stuck to his guns" so to speak...even though he was much like Gandhi in a non-violence approach to life and liberty. He lived through much discord.
