PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – According to one social media network, Rittenhouse Square is among the top 20 most popular parks in the United States.

As Travel + Leisure reports, Foursquare provided the data based on the number of “check-ins” at parks nationwide from August 2011 to August 2012.

Unsurprisingly, New York City’s Central Park is number one, followed by the same city’s Union Square Park at two, Bryant Park at number three and High Line Park at four. In fact, all of the top six most popular parks are in the Big Apple.

However, Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Square clocked in at a very respectable number 10. The short write up refers to the popular green space as “a hub for block parties and festivals” and says it’s “set in the ritzy Philly neighborhood that shares its name.”

Other parks that made the T+L list are located in Austin, TX; Seattle, WA; Washington, D.C.; and—again—in one of NYC’s five boroughs, Brooklyn.
