Fairmount Park and Schuylkill River

Fairmount Park

...is perhaps best known for the 4,400-acre ribbon of green bordering the Schuylkill River and Wisshahickon Drive.

But this Philadelphia-wide park system actually encompasses 63 separate parks of all sizes and types covering 8,900 acres and features trails for walking, jogging and biking; the Philadelphia Zoo;
a fine group of authentic Early American houses; and much, much more.

Schuylkill River

The Schuylkill River, stretching 100 miles, was a major reason for Philadelphia's growth in the 18th and 19th centuries.
The river is now a local favorite spot for recreation activities including sculling.
