The following is a survey of the current memorial plaques, waysides and identification plaques found throughout Washington Square as of January 2006. The memorial plaques in the square include everything from plaques that honor individuals and their work, those that commemorate important events, to identifying tree genus and species. Current waysides contain history about the Square and Philadelphia, while the identification plaques consist of various informational markers.

The accompanying map locates the forty-two plaques and waysides currently within Washington Square. This map is divided into quadrants and further divided into zones, with each plaque and wayside appropriately located on the map.

Other information found in this survey includes dimensions of the metal plaque or stone wayside, material from which the marker is made, installation or dedication date (if known), and the inscription that can be found on the plaque or wayside. In addition, two photographs of the plaque or wayside are included, one being a close shot of the marker at the time this survey was conducted, and another photograph showing the single marker within the wider surroundings of Washington Square.
