Spruce Street Harbor Park

Before checkout, on the day after the wedding we were attending at the Hilton, I took a walk outside and snapped a few images of Spruce Street Harbor Park.

Several years ago we took a leisurely cruise along the Delaware River. The cruise was part of a Mother’s Day special organized by the Spirit of Philadelphia. My kids were much younger and wanted to do something special for their mother. We had breakfast, listened to music, and then stood out on the deck enjoying the early spring weather.

After the cruise, we strolled along the little strip of the Harbor Park. It was under construction at the time.

Located in the Marina at Penn’s Landing, the Oasis consists of three landscaped barges, a net lounge, and floating gardens. The barges feature an ADA-compliant boardwalk, beautiful raw metal railings, and tons of seating. The cantilevered net lounge, inspired by Caribbean resorts, is a place where visitors can relax while suspended 4 feet above the water. The floating gardens are constructed from a durable, non-toxic post-consumer plastic, and used around the country for wetland restoration. Not only are they aesthetically beautiful, but they also serve to clean the water in the marina.

I am drinking a Philadelphia Pale Ale by Yards Brewing Co. @ Hilton Philadelphia at Penn's Landing.

I am in Hilton Philadelphia at Penn's Landing, drinking Philadelphia Pale Ale by Yards Brewing Co.. Yards Brewing Co. is a Micro Brewery in Philadelphia, PA.

Brewer's notes

Not to be boastful, but we honestly believe all other ales pale in comparison to ours. Dry hopped with an abundance of distinctive Simcoe hops, this straw colored pale ale is more drinkable than bitter, more aromatic than aggressive. Philly Pale, as it’s better known, is crisp, hoppy, and bursting with citrus.

Philadelphia Pale Ale was named one of the best Pale Ales in the country by The New York Times.

Our roots lie in British inspired ales. We strive to achieve balance and subtlety through careful selection of ingredients and an unwavering commitment to artisanal production practices.
