Rittenhouse Square is located between Chestnut St and South Street (North/South) and S. Broad St and S. 21st Street (East/west). It is one of the original squares planned by city founder William Penn in the late 17th century. Rittenhouse Square is named after David Rittenhouse who is an astronomer and clockmaker. You can see many Public Art pieces at Rittenhouse Square including sculptures of lion crushing a serpent, a sculpture of a billy goat, a sculpture of a girl carrying a duck under her arm and a sculpture of two kids holding a sunflower. The square is surrounded by a low fence and has a reflecting pool and tree lined streets. You can stroll at the park or have a picnic. The lush surrounding makes it very serene.
