Spruce St. Harbor Park Officially Opens Today! – Our Weekly Obession

Spruce St. Harbor Park Officially Opens Today! – Our Weekly Obession

Today is finally the grand opening of the highly anticipated Spruce Street Harbor Park along the Delaware River Waterfront. The riverside entertainment will extend south from the Independence Seaport Museum to include temporary elements like a floating pop-up restaurant and beer garden, a hammock lounge, fire pits, boardwalk, mister walk and urban beach.

Now through August 31st, Philly locals and visitors will get the chance to experience great times at this summer village.   It will be open daily from 11am-1am and feature festivals, concerts, and amazing food/beverages.

Our favorite part may have to be “The Oasis,” a floating construction to house a restaurant and bar. Made up of three barges, a lily pad floating water garden, colorful seating and a net lounge that extends out over the river, The Oasis puts visitors right over the Delaware’s waters.  The restaurant bar, named “Blue Anchor” consists of a walk-up window, with all-alfresco seating surrounding the converted serving spaces, including bright Adirondack chairs, picnic tables and bistro tables.  Best of all – the Garces Group will handle the food and drink!  Check out their menu below.
