R. Kennedy for Visit Philadelphia

Schuylkill Banks


An eight-mile park that hugs the Schuylkill River from MLK Drive to South Street, Schuylkill Banks offers everything from outdoor movies to kayak tours and scenic cruises -- on top of regular park stuff, like walking paths and greenways. The new, 2,000-foot-long Boardwalk into the river also offers four views of the Philly skyline that are worth some serious ohs and ahs.
