At last: Summer starts on the Delaware River Waterfront!


This Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start to summer… but it’s the official start to some of Philly’s best attractions on the Delaware River waterfront! BlueCross RiverRink Summerfest, the city’s only outdoor roller skating rink, opens its gates at 11 am on Friday, May 22. This weekend, you can enjoy lots of great music, exhibitions and activities. The rink will be open every day through the end of September. Located just a short walk from Dockside, it’s the perfect place for outings with family and friends, for a date, or just a fun night on the town! For complete details, visit


Spruce Street Harbor Park, Philly’s favorite seasonal park, reopens Friday, May 22, with brand-new hammocks, delicious food along the boardwalk, a floating barge with local craft beer, and lots more! This weekend features a beer garden and a performance art piece in the Marina at Penn’s Landing. Find complete details at


On top of all that fun, the RiverLink Ferry will start its full operational schedule on Friday, May 22, as well! It runs every day through September, providing the most scenic way to cross the Delaware. Visit for more details.

When you visit Penn’s Landing this summer, make sure to stop by and see us at Dockside! We’d love to take you on a tour of our beautiful new models – and show you how fantastic it is to live on the water, in Philly’s favorite riverfront condos.

Wherever you go and whatever you do this holiday weekend, be safe… have fun… and remember to be thankful for all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our nation and for freedom.
