Lardner’s Point Park

Levick St, Philadelphia, PA 19135, USA

Lardner’s Point is a major trailhead for the North Delaware Riverfront Greenway Trail. It provides space to walk, bicycle, and relax along a very scenic stretch of the Delaware just below the iconic Tacony-Palmyra Bridge. Visitors fish from the pier, picnic at handicap-accessible tables, observe wildlife, and traverse a multi-use path through native meadows. Interpretive signage highlights the history of the site and the park’s restored freshwater tidal wetlands, meadows and riparian forest. The park’s varied habitats attract many birds, amphibians, insects, and fish. Visitors have spotted bald eagles, striped bass, Eastern red-bellied turtles, owls, and more.

The Department of Parks and Recreation recently completed implementation of a new Master Plan for the park. The work included a new playground, upgrades to the fishing ponds and viewing areas, improved parking lots with a bio swale and plantings to filter runoff before it reaches the river, and a riverfront pedestrian path. The Baxter Trail will be completed in 2015, extending from Pennypack on the Delaware Park, linking the two parks with a multi-use trail.
