***UPDATE*** As of Wednesday, August 27, the Spruce Street Harbor Park season has been extended through Sunday, September 28. For more info, click here.
We hate to be the bearer of sad news, but alas, Spruce Street Harbor Park concludes its season at Penn’s Landing on Monday, September 1.
The pop-up public park on the Delaware River Waterfront has been an absolutely amazing addition to Philadelphia’s alfresco summer scene, and we’ll sure miss the hammock grove, urban beach, game-filled boardwalk and floating restaurant.
But before Spruce Street Harbor Park shutters, we highly suggest a trip to Penn’s Landing to take advantage of the space one last time. The park is open daily from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m., with concessions and games available from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and food and drink at The Blue Anchor floating restaurant available nightly on weekdays and all day on the weekend.
Plus, this Saturday, August 30 marks the final Art Star Pop-Up Market. Like the annual Art Star Craft Bazaar, the pop-up market brings out handmade gifts by some of the best indie crafters from Philadelphia and beyond to the Delaware River waterfront.
This two-month-long placemaking installation has sure delivered a substantial reminder to the city of the waterfront’s awesome maritime history and ever-developing future.
But don’t shed too many tears over the loss of a park at Penn’s Landing: this winter, pop-up beer garden and winter village Waterfront Winterfest will return to the waterfront! Stay tuned for more on the super winter recreation yet to come.
While the weather is warm, though, get out to the waterfront! Check right here for complete park, restaurant and concession hours.
Truly, don’t miss the final chance to check out what’s been a stupendous spot to enjoy summer in Philadelphia.
