Group Fun for Everyone at Franklin Square

Franklin Square Groups

Formerly known as North East Publick Square, Franklin Square is one of the 5 original squares laid out by William Penn in 1682. Originally designated as an open green-space, Franklin Square lives up to what it was always meant to be – An outdoor oasis, removed from the “hustle & bustle” of big city life.

Franklin Square welcomes group reservations of 20 or more people for exclusive group rates. For more information or to make a group reservation, contact Jannah Abdul-Aziz, Group Sales Associate, at jaziz@historicphiladelphia.org or by phone at 215-629-5801 x213.
