Parks on Tap Returns to Philly

Philadelphia’s traveling beer garden is back in action—and coming to a park near you!

Parks on Tap is bigger and better than ever in its third year. This spring and summer, the pop-up party is heading to 23 city parks—several more sites than last season—including three locations right near your Edgewater apartment.

What exactly is Parks on Tap? The event is organized by the city and Four Corners Management and travels to public parks all across Philly from April to September. Visitors can enjoy a beer garden, gourmet food, lawn games, live music and more. Proceeds from the event go back to the host park, making it an innovative concept that invests in local communities.

Parks on Tap is open Wednesday-Sunday and provides an excellent opportunity to enjoy the sunshine in Philly’s green spaces—all while sipping, snacking and socializing! Each site offers a unique opportunity to see the city’s parks and neighborhoods, but if you don’t want to travel too far from home, you’re in luck!

Your first opportunity to catch Parks on Tap near us is June 20-24 at Schuylkill Banks, a half-mile from your Edgewater apartment. Relax riverside with your drinks and snacks to cool off on what is likely to be a hot summer day. This will also be a great spot to experience Parks on Tap at night. The beer garden includes eye-catching canopies and twinkling lights that bring it to life at night—which is sure to be a sight to behold with the backdrop of the river and city skyline!

From July 5-8, head to Shofuso Japanese House and Garden, about three miles from your Edgewater apartment. The hidden gem in West Fairmount Park hosted Parks on Tap last year, to great success. Enjoy all that Parks on Tap has to offer, as well as tour the Japanese house and garden to add a dose of culture to your experience.

Wrap up the season Sept. 12-16 at Waterworks, a half-mile from your Edgewater apartment. Nestled behind the Art Museum, with fabulous views of the Schuylkill River, this is the perfect spot to send off the summer!

Hope to see you there!
