Spooky Mini-Golf fun at Franklin Square

Are you looking for a fun place to go this Halloween season? How about a fun filled place that is a just a little spooky that is great for little and big kids alike?  Well if you are fortunate to live in the Philadelphia area you are going to love Franklin Square! Here is a little more information about Franklin Square from the website :

FRANKLIN SQUARE is a fun family entertainment and a beautiful park are just steps away from the Liberty Bell, in one of William Penn’s original five squares, and the only one dedicated to fun. Award-winning Franklin Square is a family-friendly play place located in the heart of Historic Philadelphia, featuring Philly Mini Golf, a renovated vintage marble fountain, playgrounds, the Philadelphia Park Liberty Carousel, and the acclaimed SquareBurger, with offerings from STARR Restaurants. 
After a day of experiencing the treasures of Philadelphia’s history, putt through some of the city’s most famous icons, take a ride on hometown racehorse heroes Afleet Alex or Smarty Jones aboard the carousel, enjoy a rest next to the refreshing fountain, and dine on the finest burgers and shakes in town. All summer long, enjoy stories about our nation’s history from the Once Upon A Nation storyteller. Awarded Best of Philly® two times by Philadelphia Magazine and one of the Five Coolest Playgrounds in the United States by Yahoo!

One of my favorite things to do when visiting the jersey shore is spending time with my family playing mini golf together we just love mini golf. But we only get to play once or twice a year depending on how many times we get to go down the shore. Of course we could play more if we had the chance but there is nowhere to play in the city… Or at least that is what I thought.. My family and I were very fortunate to be able to check out a great mini golf course that is located in the heart of the city of Philadelphia. Right at Franklin Square! For those who may not know Franklin Square is a lovely park right in center city Philadelphia with plenty of fun family options and miniature golf.

The golf course was decorated for Halloween with spooky cobwebs and smoke. As we played golf we got to enjoy the haunted spooky music as well.  The golf course itself, was well maintained and just a great looking course. Where else can you golf next to a replica of Boat House Row, or the Art Museum, and so many other great Philly landmarks.  The golf was great, and I am sure my family and I will be back soon.

But Franklin Square has so many more things than just a great golf course they have a beautiful merry go round, and SquareBurger a great place to eat.  My daughter had such a fun time on the Merry Go Round she loved all of the colorful horses. I loved the unique animals, like a lion an eagle and of course Philly’s own Smarty Jones.

So if you are looking for a fun place to go out with the family and have a great time. Now you can  play mini golf in the city there is a great golf course that the family will love, right at Franklin Square.  For October, Philly Mini Golf is transformed into spooky fun for the season with fog, lights, music, and surprises!
