Spruce Street Harbor Park

Spruce Street Harbor Park is a true celebration of Philadelphia and the Delaware Riverfront. In 2014, the Delaware River Waterfront Corp commissioned Groundswell to design a temporary summer park on the Delaware River, which was received with rave reviews from the local community. Often noted as one of the country's best urban beaches, Travel and Leisure ranked Spruce Street Harbor Park as one of the world's best floating restaurants. The design, now in its third year, features floating river barges that extend into the harbor and cantilevered net lounges that suspend visitors over the water. A variety of food and beverage options provide something for everyone. Amid the bustle of the park, an array of LED lights and hammocks hang from the existing trees–an opportunity to stop and take it all in.
