Franklin Square, one of Philadelphia’s five original squares, is the only park in the city strictly dedicated to fun. It also happens to house downtown Philadelphia’s sole mini-golf course. The recently renovated square features Old City-themed holes, including the Ben Franklin Bridge, a clanging Liberty Bell and a replica of the oldest street in America, Elfreth’s Alley. After a few rounds, treat your fellow putters to root beer floats or milkshakes at the on-site Square Burger.
