SCENIC OUTDOORS IN THE PHILADELPHIA AREA

Fairmount Park

Fairmount Park

Every city has its own beauties, but few cities anywhere can lay claim to the sylvan beauty on the banks of the Schuylkill River that are known as Fairmount Park. The Park (4,180 acres) is the largest landscaped park in the U.S. You can walk, bicycle, rollerblade, or drive along Kelly and West River Drives today and feel deep in the country. In the depths of the Wissahickon Ravine and at other points in the park, the city's tall buildings are not visible over the treetops, and if it were not for the hum of traffic on the Drives, you would be in the pastoral world that Thomas Eakins painted.

Fishing in the lake is good-to-excellent for warm water fish, and while the lake’s off limits for swimming, there’s a large pool for anyone who wants to take a dip.


If you’re not looking to spend time on the water, you might try exploring the trails, which wind through forest, field and wetlands. The trails are open to horseback riders as well as hikers and backpackers.


About 900 acres are open to hunting, so use caution when hiking during hunting season.


Marsh Creek State Park was developed to help manage the water resources in the Brandywine Creek Watershed, which drains 330 square miles, most of which are in Chester County.


Limousine rental, airport limousine, and limousine services are all available 24/7.
