Glendinning Rock Garden

New Park Alert! Don't miss drinks at our new hidden gem, Glendinning Rock Garden!


 WED +  THURS 5 - 10PM | FRIDAY 4 - 11PM | SATURDAY 1 - 11PM | SUNDAY 12 - 10PM


Formerly called the "Spring Garden Water Works", Glendinning Rock Garden is a cozy secret park located along the Schuylkill River under the West Girard Overpass. This charming spot is home to lively ponds, winding park trails, trickling waterfalls, and foundation that is overgrown with plant-life. Glendinning Rock Garden is the perfect picnic spot, tucked away and secluded from the city. 



Join Roots2Rise every Thursday from 6-7PM for free yoga in the park! Donations are encouraged and those who donate will receive a free drink ticket to use at Parks on Tap that day.


We're tucked away this week at Glendinning Rock Garden, so here are some directions to help you find Parks on Tap!

If you're biking from Center City off Kelly Drive, make a right on Sedgley Drive and stay straight until it turns in Poplar Street. At Poplar and Girard Ave, make a left onto Girard. Finally, make a right onto Brewery Hill Drive!
