Konrad Square is a beautiful city-owned park located immediately across the street from 2223. Konrad Square is named after Joseph Konrad, a firefighter who died fighting a fire a few blocks from the park. Konrad Square is managed by Philadelphia Parks & Recreation. Friends of Konrad Square and the Philadelphia Horticultural Society contribute significant time and money. Small groups generally have no problem using the park without advance arrangements. Larger groups or events may require a permit from Philadelphia Parks & Recreation.
