Walking Tour: A Walk Along the Parkway

August 3, 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm


Philadelphia’s Parkway references the most beautiful cities of Old Europe and this walking tour will help visitors discover the magnificent buildings along Philadelphia’s own Champs-Élysées and what lies beneath them. Begin the tour in the From Schuylkill to Hudson exhibition and learn about the infamous Walking Treaty on the way to Logan Square. Then embark on a mile-long stroll down the picturesque path to the Fairmount Water Works, where wheels once pumped the City’s drinking water. Ideal for history buffs, cultural connoisseurs and architectural mavens.

PLEASE NOTE: Comfortable shoes strongly encouraged for this walking tour. Transportation back to PAFA is provided.

This Walking Tour is made possible with the support of the Fairmount Water Works.
