About Cherry Street Pier
Created for and by the Philadelphia community, Cherry Street Pier is a mixed-use public space on the central Delaware River waterfront. Built into the shell of a century-old municipal pier, it is a year-round creative incubator, marketplace, performance venue, and social space for all of Philadelphia to enjoy.
Ode to Cherry Street Pier
Ode to Cherry Street Pier commemorates the history of the Pier and its vibrant future. The poem was written by Cherry Street Pier resident artist alumna and Philly’s former poet laureate Yolanda Wisher. Video by Cory J Popp.
On the Waterfront
Delaware River Waterfront Corporation
The Delaware River Waterfront Corporation (DRWC) is a 501(c)(3) created in 2009 exclusively for the benefit of the City of Philadelphia and its citizens. Our fundamental purpose is to design, develop, program, and maintain public amenities such as permanent and seasonal parks, trails, and streetscape improvements to transform the waterfront into a vibrant destination for recreational, cultural, and commercial activities for residents and visitors of Philadelphia as is consistent with the goals of the Master Plan for Central Delaware. Daily programming throughout the year is changing the way Philadelphians see and discuss the waterfront, and is helping to create spaces and communities that connect residents and visitors to the waterfront.
