Parks on Tap will feature two new season-long locations for 2021! The official season opening for both outside the famous Fairmount Water Works (640 Waterworks Drive) and at the all-new South-to-Christian Trails End (entry ramp at South Street and South 27th Street) is set for Thursday, May 6th at 4:00pm.

Enjoy sweeping riverfront views, fresh food, beers on tap, wine and non-alcoholic beverages in a secure outdoor environment with comfortable chairs and clean restrooms. Parks on Tap is family (and fido) friendly.

Season hours for Parks on Tap at the Water Works location will be Monday to Friday, from 4:00pm to 10:00pm, and Saturday and Sunday from Noon to 10:00pm, weather permitting.

Parks on Tap at Trails End will operate Wednesday and Thursday from 4:00pm to 10:00pm, Friday from 4:00pm to 11:00pm, Saturday from 12:00pm to 11:00pm, and Sunday from 12:00pm to 10:00pm.

A daily digital sign-in is required. Food and drink are pay-as-you-go. Seating is first come, first served. For more information on the Parks on Tap safety plan and directions, please visit www.parksontap.com.

“FCM Hospitality is excited to announce two new season-long locations for Parks on Tap that span the banks of the Schuylkill River,” said FCM Hospitality Owner Avram Hornik. “One of my all-time favorite locations returns for the summer at Fairmount Water Works. This location is always a big hit with young families and neighbors. We love seeing all the familiar faces who visit every time we pop up behind the Philadelphia Museum of Art. We are also thrilled to introduce a brand new Parks on Tap site off of the South Street Bridge at Trails End. Parks on Tap has fans that follow us around each year to every location. Trail’s End is going to be a brand new addition that we hope will really excite the long-time supporters of the program who have been asking for something new for 2021. We also hope to meet and serve all new audiences in the neighborhoods surrounding the South Street Bridge, in both directions of South Philly and University City.  No matter which location you pick and are closest too, we invite you to come out, relax and enjoy the summer days ahead with our Parks and Tap family.”
