Race Street Pier
Sheltered beneath the hustle and bustle that crosses the Ben Franklin Bridge, The Race Street Pier, which is part of the Delaware River Water Front, is a tiny oasis of a park with an urban flair.
As surely as Spring brings budding trees you’ll find both young and old who come to the Race Street Pier to spread a blanket and soak up the sun, enjoy a leisurely lunch on a park bench, check email and browse the Internet or stop for a few minutes to enjoy the boats on the Delaware River.
