Around Dockside: The Delaware River Waterfront

Residents and visitors agree that Philadelphia’s Delaware River Waterfront is becoming one of the most vibrant spots in the city. At Dockside, we love our neighborhood! Tied together by Penn’s Landing, the Waterfront features restaurants, popular event venues, art installations, and other attractions.

Located along the Delaware River, the waterfront encompasses parts of Pennsport, Queen Village, Old City, Society Hill, Northern Liberties, and Fishtown. It’s the best of everything, including beautiful parks, outdoor concert venues, festivals, museums, and of course, the best views. Convenience is certainly something you’ll want to consider if you work outside of the city. Center City is walkable from the waterfront, I-95 is nearby, as are the Ben Franklin and Walt Whitman Bridges if you have business or friends in New Jersey. Hop on the RiverLink Ferry. It links Penn’s Landing with the Camden waterfront, home of the Adventure Aquarium.

Another fun attraction on the water is Spruce Street Harbor Park. This seasonal attraction is known for its boardwalk along the river, beachfront atmosphere, and hammocks that hang illuminated by strings of LED lights. This is the kind of unique attraction that’s easy to overlook if you live here because its atmosphere is so out of the ordinary. Whenever you have visitors come to town, this should definitely make the sight-seeing itinerary. You can reserve one of two available barges or one of the hammock lounges.


For a taste of contemporary, progressive, and world-class performance art, check out FringeArts. Genre-defying dance, music, and theater sometimes push boundaries and always entertains. Programs such as FringeArts enrich lives and inspire community development.


There’s nothing quite like being able to spend the morning basking in the natural beauty of a beachfront park, the afternoon supporting a local theater, then the evening on a hammock a few feet from your favorite pub. When you live at The Residences at Dockside, this can be a reality! Philadelphia has so much to offer, and Philadelphia waterfront luxury condos are the perfect place to call home.
