Aviator Park, located on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway adjacent to The Franklin Institute and Moore College of Art + Design, serves as an open, green, family-friendly oasis. In 2007, the park underwent an extensive renovation with new paved walkways, plantings, benches, trash receptacles and light fixtures.

In addition to its relaxing green space, Aviator Park also hosts a number of public artworks including the Aero Memorial by Paul Manship and the All Wars Memorial to Colored Soldiers and Sailors by J. Otto Schweizer.
