You will need a car to see both sides of the park. At East Fairmount Park we saw the Waterworks (short walk with sweeping views), Boathouse Row (short walk along the Row), Woodford & Strawberry Mansions. There was a small charge to tour the Historical Mansions. Woodford was a hang-out for the British during the Revolutionary War. The West side had Shofuso Japanese Garden (traditional house and gardens). It's open 11 AM to 5 PM for a charge. We enjoyed most of it over a 4 hour span.
