Just in time for your daydreams about the weekend to start up, the folks over at Curbed Philly have created a handy 17-stop map to Fairmount Park’s greatest hidden gems. And we want to go to ALL of them this weekend … but that seems an impossible task, so we’ll settle for getting to them all before summer comes to a close. We suggest you do, too.
The map features spots we know well and love — Boxer’s Trail, which earned itself a Best of Philly award for best city running trail a few years back, the Fairmount Park Horticulture Center, home to the prettiest pop-up yoga classes maybe ever, and the Shofuso Japanese House and Garden, just to name a few — and gems that we didn’t quite grasp the coolness of, like the Pavilion in the Trees. (Getting there is officially on my must-do list.) The map also makes it really easy to pinpoint where destinations are in relation to each other so you can properly plan to knock a few out in one day.
