Dilworth park

Join members of the Penn Weitzman Alumni Association (PWAA) for a brunch and walking tour of Dilworth Park.

Dilworth Park, located on the west side of Philadelphia's City Hall and known as Philadelphia’s Center Square, is designed as a high-quality gateway to public transit and as a civic place with ongoing programming, amenities, and activities that benefit the public. 

Learn from designers at OLIN, KieranTimberlake, and the Center City District about the history, design, and construction of the project from conception to completion. The event will start at OLIN’s office and guests will proceed to the guided tour.

Registration is $20 and includes brunch. This event is discounted for recent graduates (graduation years 2013-2023) and students for $10.
