Bartram’s Garden is a 45-acre National Historic Landmark, operated by the John Bartram Association in cooperation with Philadelphia Parks and Recreation. Its grounds encompass 45 acres of parkland, wildlife habitats, tidal wetlands, and a reclaimed meadow. Visitors enjoy tours of the gardens and can further explore the landscape and riverfront. The grounds are used to their full potential through events such as free movie nights, outdoor art workshops, and gardening classes. In addition to their existing River Fest & Tidal Schuylkill Boat Parade and canoe and kayak rides, this year, Bartram’s Garden is opening a community boathouse. Bartram’s Gardens offers programs for all audiences, including a Little Explorers program for toddlers, summer camps, and art and gardening classes for families and adults.
Bartram’s Gardens’ grounds are free and open to the public year-round, dawn to dusk, except on City-observed holidays. Bartram’s Garden is easily accessible by trolley and bicycle.We invite you to come here to learn, connect, celebrate, and discover a shared, greener future!
