Apartments for Rent Near Dilworth Park

Renting an apartment near Dilworth Park in Center City presents many benefits, including a convenient location that immerses you in one of Philadelphia’s most popular neighborhoods. The Metropolitan is located just a couple of blocks from beloved museums along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and theaters on the Avenue of the Arts. Our apartments offer you easy access to seasonal festivals, live music, outdoor community fitness gatherings, and regular pop-ups that highlight the local businesses in and around Philadelphia’s City Hall.

Centrally located adjacent the western exterior of City Hall, this multipurpose event space is the perfect spot to kick off any jaunt around the city. Start off with a piping hot coffee from Dilworth Park Cafe for that caffeinated charge to get your day off to an energized start.

Winters in Dilworth Park are especially magical since the park is transformed into a winter wonderland. Stop by the park and join dozens of other locals and tourists taking to the ice on the (temporary) rink that gets installed each year. If you’re new to the sport, fret not! There are professionals standing by that offer weekly (paid) classes that will leave you flipping and spinning like Scott Hamilton in no time. (Okay, that may be stretching it…but you won’t be falling as much!)

The park’s market is jam-packed with local vendors selling their specialty items, ranging from art and clothing to festive holiday treats and hand-crafted jewelry. It’s a veritable smorgasbord of gift options that come with the bonus of supporting local artists and vendors.

In the warmer months, the giant Great Lawn is the perfect place to gather for a leisurely picnic amid the hustle and bustle of a sprawling metropolis. And if the sun gets to be a little too much, simply seek out one of the four tree groves or run through one of the city’s most popular splash zones, ideal for a bit of respite from the hot summer sun.

With improved facilities to access the city’s underground public transportation, you’re all set to explore once you sign on to live in one of The Metropolitan apartments for rent near Dilworth Park. There are many reasons to live in Center City Philadelphia—like perusing the food in the Italian markets in South Philly or exploring the historic buildings of Old City—and you can’t ask for a better location to get started. Contact The Metropolitan to visit our amenity-packed one- and two-bedroom apartments near Dilworth Park.
