Last Wednesday (October 1st), Philadelphia’s historic Reading Terminal Market gained nationwide recognition as 1 of the United States’ “10 Great Public Spaces.” Designation is curated by the Washington-based American Planning Association, and compiled annually. The APA initially reached out to Reading Terminal this past Spring [2014] to apply for consideration. Recognizers cited “history, function in Philadelphia and the diversity of its food stores & customer base,” as primary reasoning for inclusion. Reading Terminal opened in 1892, and currently houses 76 independently owned retailers.

The 10 Great Public Spaces [2014] :

  1. Bayliss Park – Council Bluffs, Iowa
  2. Cliff Walk – Newport, Rhode Island
  3. Delaware Park – Buffalo, New York
  4. Great Plains Trails Network – Lincoln, Nebraska
  5. Lake Mirror Park – Lakeland, Florida
  6. Lithia Park – Ashland, Oregon
  7. Point State Park – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
  8. Rainier Vista – Seattle, Washington
  9. Reading Terminal Market – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  10. The Lawn at the University of Virginia – Charlottesville, Virginia
