Tired of the stress of work and want a relaxing trip? Nothing is as relaxing as greenery and there are many parks in Philadelphia that can offer bus charter visitors some respite from stress. You can stroll and admire the greens and flowers, or you can visit some of the festival areas for something a little more upbeat. Parks are not as boring as you think they might be.

Here are some parks to head over to should you travel to Philadelphia for the weekend.

Fairmount Park

This is the biggest park yet since it covers a few city parks in Philadelphia such as Pennypack Park, and Wissahickon Valley Park. The Fairmount Park is divided into different sections where rental bus visitors can choose which type of activities they want to enjoy at the park. The most popular ones are:

  • East Fairmount Park: Home to the Smith Memorial Playground and a driving range.
  • West Fairmount Park: There are many places of interest located here such as the Mann Music Center, the Japanese TeaHouse and the Please Touch Museum for kids.
  • Wissahickon Valley Park: For outdoor activity, you can find many hiking trails in this park, as well as a walking, biking and horseback riding trail popularly known as the Forbidden Drive.

Clark Park

A municipal park in Philadelphia, Clark Park is home to the Shakespeare in Clark Park theater company. In addition, this park also hosts the largest farmers’ market in Philadelphia that is held all year round, once or twice a week.

At Clark Park, you can also use its basketball court, playground, or stroll along its many paths. Don’t forget to also visit the 1890 sculpture of Charles Dickens, made by Francis Edwin Elwell.

Love Park

Officially known as JFK Plaza, the Love Park name was derived from the sculpture of Robert Indiana called “Love” which overlooks the plaza. There is free wireless access available throughout the park, making this place a great hangout for coach bus visitors to chill. There is also a Love Fountain at the Love Park, that is oftentimes dyed a different hue to commemorate different events.
