Bartram's Garden offers free public boating on Saturday in the summer along with many other river events. Click here for more information about kayaking, canoeing and fishing at Bartram's Garden.
Using your own self-powered watercraft
Docks are available at Walnut Street and Bartram's Garden for public use. There is no driving to either dock, so you must carry or dolly in your kayak, canoe, or paddleboard. SRDC staff members are happy to open up the gate to the Walnut Street Dock whenever we are on the trail. Be aware of other traffic on the river, especially powerboats and jet skis which are common during the summer. A detailed map of river access points is here.
