Find Fun Now

There's always something fun to do on Schuylkill Banks!


Grab your bike, running shoes, or fishing pole to participate in a wide variety of riverside activities. You can run, walk, bike or skate along the trail, which connects to Kelly Drive and the rest of the Schuylkill River Trail. Lawn areas and benches along the trail are the perfect spot for a relaxing picnic, urban fishing and creating plein-air artwork. The tidal basin and Walnut Street Dock are also ideal places to put your canoe or kayak into the water for a paddle on the tidal Schuylkill!

Walkers, runners, cyclists, picnickers and kayakers enjoy a beautiful spring day on Schuylkill Banks


Schuylkill River Development Corporation and our partners put on a variety of organized events throughout the year. Schuylkill Banks River Tours are fun and fact-filled boat tours that introduce participants to the tidal Schuylkill River. Hidden River Outfitters Kayak Tours give paddlers of all levels of experience a unique way to experience the outdoors in the heart of the city. Free Movie Nights along the trail are a fun way to spend a summer evening under the stars. Other community events are scheduled throughout the year to bring people together for fun events along the Schuylkill!
