If you were in mourning about the very imminent demise of Spruce Street Harbor Park, you can dry your tears—at least for a little while longer. Looks like the waterfront summer pop-up just got a life-extension. Foobooz has the scoop:

The Delaware River Waterfront Corporation has extended Spruce Street Harbor Park through September 28th. The riverfront park was originally scheduled to close on August 31st. The hours of operation for the park and the Garces Group operated Blue Anchor will remain the same. Look for some seasonal additions for September.

Spruce Street Harbor Park was built using a substantial grant from ArtPlace America to show visitors the potential of  Penns Landing Marina area. The objective of connecting Philadelphians and visitors to the waterfront clearly succeeded. 35,000 people per week visited the park, nearly twice that over the Independence Day weekend.
