Named for Edwin Henry Fitler, the late 19th century mayor of Philadelphia, Fitler Square is steps from the energy of Center City yet has an ambiance all its own—low-rise, exceedingly livable, and breathtakingly beautiful. The avenues surrounding the square—many charmingly narrow and cobblestoned—are lined with lovingly restored brick townhomes, modern upscale condos, lush gardens and leafy, old-growth trees.
A jewel among neighborhood parks, Fitler Square itself is one of Philadelphia’s most picture-perfect spots. Its Victorian fountain, whimsical animal sculptures, and genteel brick pathways are framed by stately mid-19th century row homes to form the very portrait of urban elegance.
With access to the Schuykill River Park’s paths and playground and some of the best schools in the city, Fitler Square ranks among Philadelphia’s most family-friendly neighborhoods–yet an abundance of fine dining, galleries, cozy cafés, and a year-round farmers’ market make it popular with residents of all lifestyles.
