Proposed Spruce Street Harbor Park

The Delaware River Waterfront Corporation (DRWC) announced the creation of the Spruce Street Harbor Park at Penn’s Landing Marina. A two-month summer program throughout July and August, the park will feature a boardwalk, urban beach, fountains, and misting areas on the Delaware River Waterfront. The centerpiece of the park will be a series of floating barges with lily pad water gardens, a pop-up restaurant and bar, and nets that will suspend visitors over the water.

DRWC is positioning the Spruce Street Harbor Park as a destination for summer fun and relaxation in Philadelphia. The Harbor Park is expected to reconnect the city to the waterfront.  Visitors will be able to relax in the hammocks, cool off under the mist walk, lounge under an umbrella at the urban beach, or indulge in their favorite summer foods on the floating barge.
 
The park is located within the Penn’s Landing Marina, at Columbus Boulevard at Spruce Street.
