6 Best Picnic Spots in Philadelphia


Philadelphia is a beautiful city with immense American history, full of  world-class museums, and a delicious food scene.

There’s so much to do and see, yet one of the best things to do in Philadelphia is to slow down and enjoy a relaxing picnic.

Schuylkill Banks

While the benches over the boardwalk are a lovely spot to relax and enjoy the views, true picnickers may prefer Schuylkill River Park near the end of the boardwalk between Walnut and South Street.

Rittenhouse Square

The park has lovely ribbons of walking paths, dotted with fountains and statues, which is beautifully lit in the evenings.

Eakins Oval

Eakins Oval has found its groove with regular events such as free fitness classes, outdoor cinema, arts and culture events, and pop-up beer gardens.

Franklin Square

A popular green space and picnic spot for both locals and tourists, you’ll often find food trucks, street performers, and musicians in the square.

Race Street Pier and the Delaware River Waterfront

Race Street Pier is a popular spot for joggers and sunbathers. It is also a popular location for couples to have their engagement photos taken, and of course, picnic lovers.

Penn Treaty Park

The park has a small selection of shady picnic tables with a children’s playground and loads of grassy space to throw down a picnic blanket.
