One of the best parts of living in Philly is the city’s many outdoor spaces. There’s the beloved (and giant) Fairmount Park, of course, but the city has so much more to offer—and all of it is pretty easily accessible. No matter where you are, a green space is likely just a short bus ride away.
So, just ahead of Labor Day, we’ve put together a list of the best spots to enjoy the outdoors with a picnic or a cookout. Bring family and friends for the holiday weekend, or just take in some good outdoor eats before the end of summer.
If you’re organizing a special event (think big birthdays, weddings, and sports) or a gathering of over 50 people, you’ll likely need a permit. Otherwise, a lot of these spaces are fair game for you and a handful of your closest friends to just lay out a blanket and enjoy the summer breeze.
