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.”READ MORE: Man Struck, Killed By Vehicle In Northeast Philadelphia: Police
