Walking / Jogging
Sharing the path with bicyclists, casual walkers and serious runners also enjoy the Schuylkill River Trail, sometimes traveling towards the most recent addition - a boardwalk that extends over the river. Across the street from The Philadelphian, strollers wander through the Art Museum's outdoor sculpture garden and the nearby Azalea Garden, with its gorgeous variety of azaleas and rhododendrons.
Rowing and Paddling
From long dragon boats to one-oar sculls, the boats plying the river offer yet another opportunity for The Philadelphian's residents to enjoy the natural resources close at hand. Those of us who do not row can still watch the racing shells that launch from the eleven Victorian boathouses on picturesque Boathouse Row. Next to the human paddlers, the ducks and cormorants go about the serious business of finding their next meal.
