Verywellkept and clean. Kids enjoyed playing in the fountain. Lots of kids there but did not feel over crowded. Nice carousel but be sure to bring dry clothes - can't ride wet (even damp).

This large riverside park is under the Walnut Street bridge and along Frazier Avenue on the north shore of the city. Lots of restaurants and bars along the perimeter that cater to the rather diverse folks who make up the daily traffic, from trendy residents...More

Lovely park to stroll around. We loved the fountain with all the animals, and the gorgeous carousel. We did not walk the complete park, but what we saw was beautiful. Many shady spots, as well as fields to play in.

This is a park with an antique carousel and a splash pad/fountain for the kids and even adults to play in. It is full on a hot day, very noisy. There are some odd characters hanging around but I was never bothered. There are lots...More

Coolidge Park is a great spot to go with family during the day. The fountain is fun, if not a little rowdy, the lawns are well kept, there are great options for shopping and lunch on the north shore and it’s large enough to not...More

We walked here from the Walnut Street bridge. The carousel and statues around the splash pad were great (we went in cooler weather when the splash pad wasn't on), and the neighborhood was great. The park would be great for walking, but I wish there...More

Wonderful park surrounded by fantastic restaurants and shops. We've encountered some homeless being a bit aggressive with begging, but we've been countless times. The main downside is parking can be difficult.

Coolidge Park is free! There is a really great merry-go-round that costs $1 per person, but the rest of the park is free. There are some great shops and places to eat close to the park, too.
