Bartram’s Garden Community Boathouse

Due to the success of the Tidal Schuylkill Boat Parade, the Bartram’s Garden Community Boathouse was born in the summer of 2015.  We host a variety of public boating activities designed to get Philadelphians on this unique and quiet stretch of river. This includes free public boating from the Bartram’s Garden Boat Dock every Saturday 11am – 3pm, May through October. We have all the boats (kayaks and rowboats), safety gear and basic instruction needed to get you, your family and  friends on the river. All our programs are run by a dedicated crew of volunteers.

Other activities include Tuesday Sunset Paddles for Bartram’s Garden Members, boating activities for youth groups, and a variety of creative on-the-river events.
