Commemorating that landing of William Penn in 1682, today Penn’s Landing is a seasonal, waterfront gathering space for the people of and visitors to Philadelphia. According to historical writings, in 1842 Penn’s Landing was a “web” of wharves and commerce. The area served the shipping needs of the city for decades to come. In 1967 the city began a plan to develop the landing’s decrepit docks in a recreational park. During this time walkways were put, the amphitheater was built, trees were planted, and a sculpture garden was erected.
Today, Penn’s Landing hosts a variety of events from free concerts to festivals and flea markets. In addition, visitors can explore the Independence Seaport Museum, as well as several historic ships which are moored at the landing. The USS Becuna, a World War II-eta submarine, and the USS Olympia, a Spanish-American War-era cruiser are features of the Independence Seaport Museum. You’ll also find Moshulu, which is a modern-day floating restaurant housed on a barque.
