While there are numerous parks throughout the Philadelphia area, Spruce Street Harbor Park is a very special one. The park is only open during the summer (from June 27th to August 31st), but that’s still enough time for you to head over and see what all the hype is about.
In addition to hammocks and fire pits around the Columbus Monument, Spruce Street Harbor Park is complete with a pop-up restaurant called The Blue Anchor and the Art Star Pop-Up Market.
For those of you who love to play outdoor games, there’s something for you at Spruce Street Harbor Park as well. There are some arcade games operated by Apple Vending with games like Basket Fever, skeeball, various racing games, and the classic Ms. Pacman. The fun doesn’t stop there though – there’s also free games of cornhole, ping pong, tetherball, Connect Four, giant Jenga and life-sized chess to be enjoyed by all park visitors.
All in all, Spruce Street Harbor Park is a much needed addition to the Philadelphia park scene and I’ll be sad to see it go after the summer’s over. Arrange some free time in your schedule and head over the Spruce Street Harbor Park and have a memorable time.
