The park in Washington Square is so beautiful! I sit in the park on the benches while I am waiting for my bus, and I also go there because it's so peaceful and lively! People are walking their pets, you can hear the birds singing, and I get so happy when I go there to feed the squirrels! There is a Nuts To You store located on Walnut Street which is across the street from the park! So I buys nuts, popcorn and other delights and go right across the street to Washington Square Park! I love it!

This is the last of Philadelphia's five squares that we have visited (the other four are Rittenhouse square, Logan square, Franklin square, and City Hall). It's solemn peacefulness is a welcome addition to the character of Philadelphia.
