Dilworth Park outside City Hall has new programming in 2021. In addition to joining in workouts at the Center City park, people can stop by to enjoy live performances or shop from local vendors.

Dilworth Park recently opened a retro-themed roller skating rink and has now revealed a few more new additions to the public space outside City Hall.

This spring and summer, live performances will be held at Dilworth Park, with The Arts on Center Stage taking place on Wednesdays from 5 to 7:30 p.m. through Aug. 25.

A rotating lineup of retailers, local small businesses and merchants will sell their goods at the weekly pop-up.
