**Heavy rain last night caused the sewer outfalls in the lower Schuylkill to overflow. This combined with sustained winds over 15mph means we have to cancel Saturday Free Boating today. Hope to see you next week!**

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. Wait can be up to an hour on our busiest 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.
