How do I get to the Pier?
Where do I park?
The Delaware River Waterfront Corp. encourages visitors to take public transportation, bike, walk, or rideshare to Cherry Street Pier. The closest parking lot is located at Market Street and Columbus Boulevard. There are other parking lots and street parking along Columbus Boulevard and in nearby Old City.
Can I bring in my own food and drinks?
We have amazing food vendors who you should visit! If you decide to bring your own food, we do not allow personal coolers in the Pier. We also carry a variety of great cocktails, wines, and craft beers in certain sections of the Pier. No outside alcohol is allowed.
For updated and food and beverage regulations see What to Know for Your Next Visit.
Can I bring my dog?
Dogs are welcome in the park as long as they’re on leashes.
Can I fish at Cherry Street Pier?
We do not allow fishing at Cherry Street Pier. Anglers are invited to fish at Pier 68 in South Philadelphia.
Does the Pier have public wifi?
Cherry Street Pier has free public wifi.
Does the Pier have heating and air-conditioning?
No, the Pier is an unconditioned space. That being said, in the summer months we can roll up all the glass doors, and in the winter months, we can close them. The artist studios are each fully conditioned. So, if you’re coming in the fall/winter, we’d suggest that you bring some layers so that you can spend more time hanging out.
Can I go into the artists’ studios?
Be respectful of the artists-in-residence—this is their creative space as well. Please do not enter the studios or interrupt their work unless you are invited in.
