Franklin Square occupies the Northeast corner of the City’s Historic District. Early depictions show this area, referred to as “The Hill,” as having a prominent rise in elevation up from the commercial warehouse area that lined the river. The northwest quadrant of the square features a lighted fenced in basketball and tennis court and the northeast quadrant features playground equipment and a large picnic pavilion. The remaining southwest quadrant features open green space that serves as the site of the annual African-American History Festival.
