FREE RIVER PADDLING IS HERE
Bartram’s Garden is a place where people of all ages can access one of Philly’s greatest natural resources, the Tidal Schuylkill River (the lower section of the river, south of the Water Works). Whether you’re never been on the river or are an active boater, there are many ways to explore Philly’s “Hidden River” here at Bartram’s Garden.
Enjoy free kayak and rowboat rides every Saturday from our new Community Boathouse; cruise the Schuylkill aboard Patriot Harbor Lines; and have a grand time at our annual Riverfest & Tidal Schuylkill Boat Parade each June.
