On Nov. 11, a new attraction will open at Dilworth Park. Groundswell Design Group, the organization behind the popular Spruce Street Harbor Park and Independence Beer Garden, created a winter-only maze for the outdoor space.
America's Garden Capital Maze will showcase all 32 public gardens, arboreta and historic landscapes that are located within 30 miles of Philadelphia, by displaying topiaries from each. If you didn't know, Philadelphia is "America's Garden Capital."
The maze will feature twinkling lights, archways made from branches and other seasonal plants. Complete the maze, which also serves as a pop-up winter garden, and you'll find yourself at a decorated gazebo.
It was created in partnership with Greater Philadelphia Gardens.
During the winter, Dilworth Park is home to an ice rink, warming tent serving hot chocolate and alcoholic drinks and holiday market.
Christmas Village is also opening closer to Dilworth Park this year. The open-air holiday market will be set up at the City Hall Courtyard and Northern Apron.
