North of Rittenhouse Square, the area of Logan Square runs from Market Street to Spring Garden Street and from Broad Street to 26th Street. Named for Logan Circle, which is the famous circle , along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, containing the Swann
Memorial Fountain. Logan Square Park is one of five original “squares” in Philadelphia. It was originally designed by William Penn’s surveyor who wished to create a public park for citizens to gather. This flourishing neighborhood is home to the museum
district, including the famous Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Franklin Institute, The Academy of Natural Science, The Rodin Museum and the Barnes Museum. This section of the city houses many prominent private schools, including the Montessori pre-school,
the Greene Towne School, and Friends Select. A short walk to 30th Street Station and the business district make this section of the city a desirable place to live.
