Philadelphia, PA - Parks on Tap is expanding with the roll-out of a brand new venue located outside the Fairmount Water Works at 640 Waterworks Drive.
Parks on Tap Second New Location at Fairmount Water Works
The Waterworks spot comes with breathtaking views of Boathouse Row along with the Schuylkill River. The Waterworks joins Parks on Tap outdoor Fairmount Horticulture Center Arboretum location at 100 N. Horticultural Drive.
"Parks on Tap has proven to be a hit with local residents looking to get outside and enjoy our parks but keep their social distance and practice safety first," said FCM Hospitality Owner Avram Hornik. "During the global pandemic, outdoor socially distanced options like Parks on Tap are more important than ever as city residents look to spend summer in the city, while they find new and different ways to enjoy stay-cation options."
Fairmount Water Works History
Fairmount Water Works was constructed between 1812 and 1872 to supply clean drinking water to the city and was in operation up until 1909. Fairmount Water Works currently houses a dining establishment as well as an interpretive center, which enlightens the public about the local watershed historical past.
Parks on Tap Menu
The new spot will offer a full menu from regionally sourced items and snacks. The selection will also feature bread and pastries from The Lost Bread Co.
Also, look for an assortment of hometown craft beers, wine, and cocktails, in addition to non-alcoholic beverages, including water, soda, and iced tea.
The beer selection will feature Mainstay Independent Brewing Company's Love Your Park Pale Ale. Love Your Park Pale Ale was developed exclusively for Parks on Tap to help raise awareness for volunteering at loveyourpark.org. A portion of profits from the sale of the exclusive ale supports the park's efforts.
