“lovely park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012

Big expanses of lawn with paths and gardens, right in the middle of the historic area. All ages of people strolling, relaxing, playing, hurrying to the next "must see" spot. Located right in the middle of all the historic landmarks.

“Let Freedom Ring”

The mall, the Presidents house, and the current home of the Liberty Bell make this an inspiring and enlightening tour.

“demonstrates poor funding for the Park Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2012

The park is imaginative and nicely arranged and the rangers delightful. We had a superb guide at the Hall who made things come alive. It was moving to be in the hall where our country was truly born. However, we were sad to see that the poor funding for the Park Service hs led to poor maintenance of the hall itself on the outside(a cupola peeling badly and needing paint) and less so in the hall (but things did need dusting). This building deserves premiere care and love.
