Watch: Philly’s Spruce Street Harbor Park set up in 30 seconds

The popular park is back for a fourth season; here’s what it took to get ready.

In 2014, the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation did something unheard of with the underused stretch on the eastern side of Columbus Boulevard below Penn’s Landing: Turned it into a must-visit destination.

Spruce Street Harbor Park was a hit in its first year, and has gotten more popular every season since. It takes a lot of work to get it all ready, and it’s all done in a flurry, with lots of 6 a.m. mornings on the riverside. But in the end, it’s worth every minute.

There’s games to play, places to lounge, and lots to eat: Federal Donuts donut chips and chicken sandwiches, Garces Group sausages and tacos, Franklin Fountain ice cream and sorbet, funnel cakes, pizza, fries and more, plus a selection of mostly local beer.

Before you head over, check out how everything came together in the timelapse video below.
