For 27 years, the Center City District has been making downtown Philadelphia clean, safe and attractive with lighting, signs and landscaping. Ten years ago we began renovating and programming Center City parks, including Dilworth Park, Sister Cities Park and the new Rail Park. We produce Restaurant Week and publish key market research on significant issues that impact Center City. What can it do better or differently?
