Support the Rittenhouse Lawns

Thanks to our Friends at John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, your gift in support of the Rittenhouse Lawn Restoration Project will double in size - helping us make the grass even greener.


Our beloved Square is a cherished gathering spot and oasis for all, though in recent years, the increased wear and tear on the Square's lawns have impacted the beauty of the park. That is why FRS has set out to restore every square foot of lawn over the next four years, after all that’s what Friends are for!


We need your help.

Did you know that it costs $2.56 to restore one square foot of lawn in Rittenhouse Square? By donating today you can help restore more of Rittenhouse Lawns, receive exclusive Friends of Rittenhouse Square gifts (like a pet leash or picnic blanket), and Knight Foundation will match your gift - dollar for dollar. 

Yoga in the Park

A yoga mat in Rittenhouse Square covers about 11 sq. ft of lawn, and what better way to relax than doing yoga, or reading a book in the park! Your donation of $28 will help ensure 11 sq. ft of lawn stays lush and green for all to enjoy, and will be recognized on our website.

Walking the Dog

A dog on a six foot leash, enjoys access to over 113 sq. ft. of lawn, where they roll, sniff, and… dig! We love our furry friends, but they also have the largest impact on our lawns. We, therefore, encourage all of their owners to help support the lawns that they love so much.


With your donation of $289 we can revitalize 113 sq. ft of lawn and you will receive:

  • A branded Friends of Rittenhouse Square Leash

  • Recognition on our website 

  • A free Furry Friend membership

(must be combined with an active human membership)
