CLOSING AT 1:30PM – Saturday Walk-Up Boating, Oct 28 (2017)
We are closing early due too high winds.
Explore this quiet stretch of the Schuylkill River by kayak or rowboat. No registration or boating experience necessary. All ages are welcome, minors must be accompanied by an adult. We provide the boats, life jackets and very basic instruction. Boating excursions limited to 30 minutes, but may be extended on slow days. Please check out our FAQ before coming!
Free Saturday Boating embarks from our Community Boathouse, on the northern tip of Bartram’s Garden. Walk downhill from the Visitor Parking area onto the Meadow trail, which leads to the Boathouse (click here for a map).
We cancel in the event of certain weather and river conditions. Check the Boathouse Facebook page for cancellation notices.
