Living on the River Just Gets Better and Better…
Have you heard about the exciting plans for the new waterfront installation coming to Penn’s Landing this summer? Just steps away from The Residences at Dockside, for the months of July and August, Dockside residents and people from throughout the Philadelphia area will be able to enjoy the new Spruce Street Harbor Park at the Penn’s Landing Marina.
This special summer program will bring a boardwalk, urban beach, fountains, and misting areas to the Delaware River Waterfront. The centerpiece of the project is a series of floating barges complete with lily pad water gardens, a pop-up restaurant and bar, and nets that will suspend visitors over the water. The park is located within the Penn’s Landing Marina, at Columbus Boulevard at Spruce Street.
Features of the new park will include:
The Oasis: made of three floating barges, this urban harbor oasis will contain a lily pad garden, colorful seating, and a pop-up restaurant and bar.
The Hammock Lounge: Oversized hammocks strung throughout trees on the west side of the park.
Columbus Seating Area: Moveable colorful seating and tables around the Columbus Monument, with fire pits lit at night for a beautiful summer ambience.
Harbor Boardwalk: An oceanfront boardwalk complete with dune grasses and summertime concessions and arcades.
The Urban Beach: lounge chairs and beach umbrellas for a true waterfront experience.
Mist Walk: cool off in this artistically designed walk, colorfully lit at night, which dispenses a light spray of water to combat the summer heat.
This project is one of the most exciting new developments to hit the riverfront – and best of all, it’s so close to home for our residents! The Dockside waterfront lifestyle just keeps getting better and better.
