Spruce Street Harbor Park
For a summertime proposal, Spruce Street Harbor Park, located on S. Columbus Boulevard is the perfect place for you. Bordering the Delaware River, Harbor Park sports nearly 100 hammocks amongst trees decorated with colorful dangly lights. From May through September, you can enjoy the boardwalk and delicious eateries with Philly classics from crab fries to cheesesteaks; funnel cake and French Toast Bites sweeten the deal. Your proposal may be accompanied by live music, swan boats, and even a private riverside hammock lounge.

Known as Philadelphia’s Park in the Sky, Cira Green is an elevated green space with room to lounge, enjoy food and drinks, and celebrate various events. Cira Green is environmentally friendly with innovative rooftop design.

Philadelphia’s Boathouse Row sits on the east bank of the Schuylkill River. In fact, 15 boathouses will brighten your proposal with beautiful string lights. This location is perfect for the history-loving couple. The Fairmount Dam and Water Works, located just south of Boathouse Row, were completed in 1821 and 1815 respectively. These structures set the stage for the boathouses, designed by architect partners Furness & Evans in a Late Victorian style. Take your significant other out for a picnic dinner by the river, go for a romantic walk on Kelly Drive, and tie the knot surrounded by beautiful, illuminated homes.

Romance is in the title for this iconic place; Philadelphia’s LOVE park is the perfect spot to seal the deal with your forever person. LOVE Park, formally known as John F. Kennedy Plaza, is located in Center City, Philadelphia on Arch Street. LOVE park was originally designed by architect Vincent G. King and city planner Edmund Bacon. The statue was built by Robert Indiana to celebrate the United States Bicentennial in 1976. Though the sculpture was removed in 1978, it fortunately made a permanent return later that year. The statue overlooks the Benjamin Franklin Parkway with a perfect view of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This dreamy proposal location is extra magical during the winter when the annual holiday village is in season.
