Washington Square Park

This is the namesake park of the Philadelphia neighborhood I lived in this summer (Washington Square West). I loved living near this park because it had lots of open grassy areas for lounging on. I took advantage of that with impromptu picnics of fresh food that I picked up at Headhouse farmers market and lazy afternoons of reading outside.

Washington Square is also historically interesting (most things in Philly are) because it is the grave site for thousands of Revolutionary war soldiers and other citizens. And while the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier for all other wars is in Arlington Cemetery, the Tomb of the Unknown Revolutionary War Soldier and its eternal flame is in this park.
