Enjoy the great outdoors in the heart of the city on Schuylkill Banks!

Schuylkill Banks is a short walk or ride away from many Philadelphia neighborhoods. The riverfront trail and greenway is an ideal spot for a wide variety of active and passive recreation. Take advantage of 1.2 miles of trail connecting to Kelly Drive and an additional 5,805 feet of trail at Grays Ferry Crescent for your walk, run, skate or bike ride. Riverside lawns are a great spot for picnicking, lounging in the sun, or playing a game of catch. Easy access to the river is perfect for urban anglers and kayakers. Be inspired by views of the river, bridges, greenery and city skyline while you paint, take photos or write on the Banks.
