Parks on Tap is Philadelphia's traveling beer garden that gives back. It is a partnership with Philadelphia Parks and Recreation, Fairmount Park Conservancy and Avram Hornik of FCM Hospitality that brings a beer garden to various parks throughout the summer. Parks on Tap is an initiative with the city that kicked off in 2016, aiming to engage the Philadelphia community and give back to the neighborhood parks.

Fresh food, beer on tap, wine, snacks, and non-alcoholic beverages are provided in a festive outdoor environment featuring comfortable chairs and hammocks and clean restrooms.
