Washington Square in Philadelphia provides a green escape from the city, with a historic element to boot.

The 6.4-acre Washington Square Park is one of the city's original park spaces, planned in the late 1600s. It was originally called Southeast Square, renamed after the first president in 1825, but its first uses did not involve leisure. The park served as a pastureland and a burial ground before local officials started to make improvements to the grounds in the early 1800s.

Today, Washington Square Park is a peaceful and relaxing place, with tree-lined walkways and sculptural monuments. There are monuments to those who died in the Civil War, as well as a Tomb of the Unknown Revolutionary War Soldier.
