If arriving from 30th Street Station, cross the river at JFK Blvd, descend the stairs on the other side of the river, and continue to your left upstream along the river and just past the Art Museum to the event. Our walk will conclude in Center City with easy transit options available, or stay the night and enjoy a morning walk with the Greenway to Bartam's Garden as well as our fourth annual Philly Freedom Walk.
