About Penn Treaty Park

Penn Treaty Park is easily the largest park in Fishtown, and one of the largest in the city. Situated on the Delaware River waterfront just north of Sugarhouse casino, Penn Treaty has something for everyone.

In addition to paved trails throughout, there is a playground for the kids that was completely renovated in 2017. An abundance of benches makes for easy people-watching, and a few grills scattered throughout make Penn Treaty an ideal place for summertime cookouts.


Penn Treaty has a handful of organized events, and is useful for smaller, unofficial events too.

Rivercity Festival

Every fall Penn Treaty plays host to Rivercity Festival, featuring a 5k run, live music, beer, food and artists.


Penn Treaty’s proximity to the river and views of the Ben Franklin bridge make it an ideal place for watching holiday fireworks, whether its New Years, July 4th, or otherwise.
