Waterworks, River Cruise and Bartram's Garden
Housed in one of Philadelphia's most recognizable landmarks, the Fairmount Water Works Interpretive Center is dedicated to fostering stewardship of shared water resources. The Fairmont Water Works is a National Historical Landmark that was designed and constructed in 1815 to provide safe, clean drinking water for the City of Philadelphia. A guided tour will give an overview of the past, present and future of water and water quality. After a stroll through the beautifully landscaped South Garden, you will be able to get lunch on your own at the Cosmic Cafe before boarding the bus for a short ride to the Walnut St. Dock. We will board the Patriot for a cruise to explore the tidal Schuylkill as we travel to Bartram's Garden. Discover the home of America's first great botanist, John Bartram, in a guided tour of the newly restored 1731 house and garden. Learn about the Bartram family - botanists, explorers, and 18th-century pioneers.
