The festival begins in a couple days, but most of the displays are set up and ready to be enjoyed! The park is so clean, clean bathrooms, food options, carousel, a fun playground and mini golf! Such a great place to spend an afternoon!

This month there is a gorgeous exhibit of Chinese dragon lanterns displayed all over the park, very colorful! Kids also enjoyed a round of 18-hole mini golf designed after "The City of Brotherly Love". Parking lots only.

Get off at Jefferson Station by train. You can walk or catch a cab/uber to Franklin Square. Enjoy! Best place to take kids in the city. Plus, the food is incredible.

I did not see any shuttles coming and going. But there are plenty of Uber drivers in Philly; one is always close by.
