If you're the outdoorsy type you've come to the right place. Philadelphia's park system, Fairmount Park spans 9,200 acres, roughly 10% of the land in Philadelphia city and county. It is made up of 63 regional and neighborhood parks filled with bike-riding and jogging trails, baseball fields, horseback riding trails, rivers and waterways-even the country's second oldest disc-golf course. Just a few short blocks from Hotel Palomar Philadelphia is Rittenhouse Square, part of Fairmount Park and a popular destination for locals and visitors alike. It's grassy lawns and roomy benches provide a welcome respite, with exceptional shopping, dining and entertainment right across the street.
