The seven-acre Franklin Square brings the magic of the holidays back with health and safety protocols, expanded seating, and plenty of fresh air, so that everyone can still have fun while being safe. Sanitization stations, family-friendly social-distancing reminders, limited capacities on attractions, and public announcements will help to ensure safety for all.

During the day, delight in playing 18 holes of wintery splendor while playing Chilly Philly Mini Golf presented by IBEW Local 98, spin with holiday music on the Parx Liberty Carousel, get active and move your feet along the Snowy Silly Stroll, and slide, swing, and run in the playgrounds.
Beginning at 5 pm each evening, the Square begins to sparkle.
