Fitler Square is a 0.5 acre public park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, bounded on the east by 23rd Street, on the west by 24th Street, on the north by Panama Street, and on the south by Pine Street.

Filter Square is named after Edwin H. Filter, a well-regarded 19th century mayor of Philadelphia.  The Square was dedicated to his memory shortly after his death in 1896. This area of the city was a shipping, shipbuilding and brick-making center that became home to some of the city’s most prominent citizens.  Although this area was almost demolished to make way for a proposed expressway, the neighborhood’s development can be traced through the changing styles of its remarkably varied architecture which dates from the mid-19th to the early 20th century.  This quaint neighborhood with its many restaurants, is host to a Spring Festival and features a weekly Farmer’s Market offering produce, dairy, meats and other area-sourced goods throughout the year.  The Filter’s Square section of Philly includes the Schuylkill River Park to 21st Street and from the north side of South Street to Walnut Street.
Its proximity, not only to Center City, but also to the Graduate Hospital area and Rittenhouse Square, allows access to the shopping and excitement of the downtown while remaining a residential area.
