Philadelphia Waterfronts New Addition Pier 68
Something that really stands out about this park is its location. Accessible through the Columbus Crossing Shopping Center in South Philadelphia, Pier 70 Blvd dead ends right into the new Pier 68 Park. There is plenty of parking, as this shopping center is home to such stores as Walmart and Home Depot. Pier 68 is not visible from Columbus Blvd, as the aforementioned parks are. It is a place that you will enjoy discovering. The vibe and the quietness here really makes you feel like you’ve escaped the city.
The color scheme of the park, from its entrance poles to the its trash cans is blue and white, creating a very nautical feel. The benches, also painted blue and white, are built in ergonomic wave-like forms. The center of the pier has been cut away to show the rise and fall of the tide of the Delaware River. It’s a beautiful and rare addition to this park’s maritime design.
I recommend taking advantage of the amazing autumn weather we’ve been having and escaping to this newest addition to the waterfront. The more we use these new riverfront assets, the more DWRC will be likely to keep creating riparian public spaces.
