Fairmount Park's thousands of acres encompass classic city attractions like the zoo, Academy of Natural Sciences, and Philadelphia Museum of Art. Take in some of Philly's famous scenery at Boathouse Row and Belmont Grove. Stroll along Kelly Drive, bike through Valley Green (riders 16 and older need a permit), or join in a game of Frisbee golf at Sedgeley Woods, a dedicated disc course.

FamilyExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Within the park are some of the area's best family museums, including the Franklin Institute and Please Touch Museum.
  • This is the start of the fabulous, family-friendly Schuylkill River Trail—ride from downtown Philadelphia all the way to Valley Forge Park.
  • It's illegal to bike on any sidewalk in Philadelphia; when trails go through neighborhoods, ride on the street with the flow of traffic.
