The Spruce Street Harbor Park is back for a second season. The brainchild of the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation, the park brought LED lights, hammocks, shuffleboard, beer and food to Penn’s Landing for two wonderful months last summer.

This year the Park will also offer a longer boardwalk, more hammocks, more seating, more tables and more greenery.

The Harbor Park, which saw a half-million visitors in 2014 will also have expanded food and drink options. Garces Group will return with all new restaurant concepts, and there will be collaborations with other notable Philadelphia restaurateurs.

Also new this year will be the Blue Cross RiverRink Summerfest. The winter’s ice rink attraction is being transformed into a roller rink for the summer, complete with an island of shade in the middle of the rink. The Lodge is being transformed into a boathouse, with decor to match. Inside the boathouse will be fans, misters and a place to have a bite to eat, a drink and to relax.

The Harbor Park will be open from May 22nd to the end of September, a full month more in 2014.
