Great place to meet friends, have a few beers, and eat some street food. There are hammocks and games like corn hole and giant connect four. We went on a weekday so it was not very crowded.

This is nice unique outdoor space. It's a small park so it quickly gets crowded but if you can snag a spot on a hammock or grassy area, it can be great for kids and families. Food is cheap and on the day we were...More

I have been to SSHP a few times, and I’m often underwhelmed. It seems, though, that I end up going at the most crowded times. There is a lot to offer, but if you are waiting for a hammock, a water-side lounge area, or a...More

This was in walking distance from our hotel so we decided to check it out. It is a great little park that you could spend some time relaxing at. Very unique.

We mostly go down when they are having an event (Live Music). It’s nice to grab some food from one of the vendors, some rosé or margarita (you can do beer lol), and sit anywhere and chill. Never sat in the hammocks cause one, they...More

Lots of shade a cold beer on a hot day. Plenty of places to sit though no hammocks were vacated while we were there. FInally Philly is correcting their Waterfront development missteps of years past. Bravo!

The harbor park is all outdoors. You can walk along the river to the first pier, then to Columbus Blvd to get to the Cherry Street pier which is indoors with food, drinks, ice cream and local art studios.
