Arrive at Cherry Street Pier

ARRIVE BY DELAWARE RIVER TRAIL

Cherry Street Pier accommodates bike parking, with bike ranks located adjacent to the Pier. Completing the multi-modal Delaware River Trail makes it easier for riders, walkers, and joggers to access more places along the river.

Some sidewalks or pedestrian paths may be closed during the construction of the new park at Penn’s Landing. Access to the Delaware River Waterfront via Chestnut and Walnut Streets is no longer available. However, the best walking routes to the trail from Center City are South, Spruce, and Market Streets to Columbus Boulevard.

ARRIVE BY RIDE INDEGO

Philly’s bike share program, Indego, has three easy-access stations within walking distance, which include Columbus Boulevard and Race Street, Delaware River Street and Penn Street, and Foglietta Plaza and Dock Street. Check for real-time updates on Indego bike availability at these locations.

ARRIVE BY CAR

Parking along Penn’s Landing will be limited due to construction on the new Park at Penn’s Landing. We encourage visitors to arrive at the Waterfront by public transit, carpooling, rideshare, or using the Delaware River Trail.

Upon arriving on the Philadelphia Waterfront, please follow all construction signs and barriers to avoid restricted areas. Be mindful of the increased heavy vehicle, bicycle, and pedestrian traffic along the Delaware River Trail. Visitors arriving by car can expect increased traffic around the construction zone and reduced parking near the construction sites. Follow posted signs.

However, if you arrive by car, we have you covered. The following are recommended parking lots adjacent to or along Penn’s Landing:

The parking fee for DRWC-owned lots (Market and Lombard Street) is a flat rate of $20 per day. Parking lots accept cash or credit cards. Please note that parking rates are subject to change. Tailgating is prohibited, and parking is limited.

DRWC is committed to providing a safe and comfortable experience for all patrons. Each parking lot has parking for patrons with a valid handicap license plate or other authorized identification. Spots are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please note that oversized vehicles are double the posted parking rate for that day and are subject to availability.

 

On your journey or once you arrive, let us know on  FacebookInstagram, and Twitter using the hashtag #ArriveAtTheWaterfront.
