This portion of Logan Square was dedicated as Sister Cities Plaza in 1976 to recognize Philadelphia's participation in the global Sister Cities Program, which builds peace, mutual understanding and economic ties through official city-to-city relationships around the world. Philadelphia's first two sister cities were Florence, Italy and Tel Aviv-Yafa, Israel, named in 1964 and 1966 respectively. Since then, the program has expanded to 7 Sister cities and 3 Partnership cities, the names of which are engraved in the surface of the adjacent fountain, noting distance in miles and kilometers from Philadelphia, which is located in the center. Sister Cities Park and the flags along the Parkway recognize the rich diversity of Philadelphia's citizens and the city's historic and continuing roles as a welcoming place for all to visit and love.
