Rittenhouse Square is Philadelphia’s most popular town square, and happens to be the site of our Athleta store! Look forward to annual flower markets, outdoor art exhibitions, restaurants and shops all along Walnut Street. The tree-and bench-filled park is a popular dog-walking destination for nearby residents and don’t forget to bring your furry friend into the store for a treat!
