An Important Message from DRWC

The Delaware River Waterfront Corporation’s (DRWC) highest priority is the safety and well-being of our staff, partners, and visitors.

As valued members of the Waterfront community, we hope that you are safe and sound during this uncertain time as we all feel the impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus).

In order to help stem the spread, we ask that the public abides by the Center for Disease Control & Prevention’s (CDC) recommendations on social distancing and avoid gathering in groups along the Waterfront until the statewide ban is lifted.

You are still welcome to enjoy the Waterfront as you practice social distancing and help keep the most vulnerable in our community healthy. (See the handy guide from the National Recreation and Park Association below.)

Here at DRWC, we are doing our part by taking the following steps:

  • Conducting thorough, deep cleanings of all administrative offices and interior spaces.
  • Ensuring that essential personnel, including security and operations staff, remain on site.
  • The parking lots at Market, Walnut, and Lombard Streets are still open, with automated machines that you may use to pay as you enter.
  • Public restrooms are closed.
  • Photography permits will not be granted for the next 4 weeks. If you previously submitted a photograph request, please follow up with DRWC.
  • All public programming/gatherings have been suspended until further notice, per the order of the Governor of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. This means no events of any kind will take place at Washington Avenue Pier, Pier 68, Spruce Street Harbor Park Sustained by Univest, Blue Cross RiverRink Summerfest, the Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing, Cherry Street Pier, and Race Street Pier until the order has been modified.

In addition, our offices are temporarily closed through at least April 6, 2020. Staff are working remotely with full access to vital tools to continue to move the vision and mission of the organization forward.

We will continue to work closely with the City of Philadelphia and follow state and federal guidelines to ensure we are doing our part to help stem the spread of this virus so that we may come together soon to celebrate Summer along the Delaware River Waterfront. We are all #InThisTogether.

Follow us on social media (FacebookTwitter, and Instagram) for continuous updates.

Getting to Cherry Street Pier


Cherry Street Pier accommodates bike parking. The Delaware River Waterfront Corporation is also in the process of building out its multi-modal Delaware River Trail, connecting bikers to even more places along the river.


Philly’s bike share program, Indego, has three easy-access stations within walking distance. These include: Race Street Pier, 2nd and Race, and 2nd and Market.


Cherry Street Pier is located at 121 N. Columbus Boulevard. It is directly south of the Race Street Pier on the east side of Columbus Boulevard. (If you’re coming by Uber, Lyft, or taxi, we promise the drivers will know where to find us soon enough!)


Market Street and the Waterfront are easily accessible by SEPTA bus routes 21, 42, 17, 33, and 48. These are three blocks from Cherry Street Pier. Route 25 runs along Columbus Boulevard and stops in front of the Pier.


The SEPTA Market-Frankford Line (the Blue line) stops at Second Street and Market Street, located about a half a mile from Cherry Street Pier.


The Philly Phlash stops at Penn’s Landing in addition to other major tourist destinations. Visit the website for tickets and more info. Runs seasonally.


The closest parking lots are located at Market Street or Vine Street and Columbus Boulevard. There are other parking lots and street parking along Columbus Boulevard and in nearby Old City.

We want to hear from you!
