A beautiful sight at night, when it is all lit up, refections in the water of the Schuylkill River.....great park in which to bike and picnic.

Fun outdoor place. Lots of people watching. Try to find some one who will show inside his boathouse.

First, finally its safe area for family. There is a 3 mile area to walk , run, ride bikes, and the river offers a peaceful view of times past
the Boat House Row is best viewed at nite, on the other side of the river, so beautiful to take photos.

Places to bring food, buy food, and bathrooms everywhere

Just behind the Museum of Art and museum district on the Schuylkill River. On Kelly Drive which makes a great walk. A row of interesting old houses line the river banks. Occasionally you may find the scullers out there rowing down the river. This is best viewed at night when the houses are lighted.

In the pantheon of tourist attractions, Boathouse Row is a distant near last. It is almost, but not quite, not worth bothering to see, but your friends will ask if you went, and you are better off being able to say, "It was nothing," than "No."
