Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

Rittenhouse Square

Rittenhouse Square

Rittenhouse Square’s trees, bushes and artworks make the park an ideal hide-and-seek spot. Greeting park-goers at the northeast entrance (18th and Walnut Streets), the Evelyn Taylor Price Memorial Sundial depicts two children holding a sundial in the shape of a sunflower. Artist Beatrice Fenton created the work to honor Evelyn Taylor, the president of the Rittenhouse Square Improvement Association, as well as the president of the Rittenhouse Square Flower Market Association.
