The river passes through the edge of the Philadelphia CBD. It is very peaceful. The greenery along the river is very good. The park is very long. There are many cherry blossoms to see when appropriate. There are also some historical buildings and zoos on both sides of the river.
This river is also a very good mother river. The river in Philadelphia is also the whole atmosphere. The whole area is also pretty good. You can see a lot of facilities. There are quite a lot of tourists here, and there are many cruise ships.
The river runs through the park area of Philadelphia. From the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Zoo to the Fairmount Park, all are on the Schuylkill River. The landscape on the river is natural, with no guardrails, only plants. There are long trails on both sides of the river, sometimes with benches and sports facilities, and you can often see people cycling or running to exercise. Spring is here, there are cruise ships in the river, and kayaking is also allowed. But it’s a pity that the cherry blossom trees on the side of Martin Luther King Drive have died a lot, so there is no need to go to see the flowers.
The river on the edge of the famous University of Pennsylvania is relatively calmer than the Delaware River. Many citizens come to run and rest under the shade of the trees near the city on the west bank of the river. There are many ducks on the river. Like the Suzhou Creek in Shanghai, it was troubled by industrial pollution or even cut off, but now it has improved the local ecology.
To be honest, it is beautiful here. highly recommended. Walk all the way from Franklin Avenue to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Just behind the museum, you will be shocked by the combination of parks, early power plants, dams, houses, rivers... Walking along various trails to enjoy the scenery from various angles, it is really beautiful, you must come.
