A fun stroll This is a great event to talk and get to know other members. All you need is water, sunscreen, and possibly a hat. There is no tree cover obviously but there's beautiful breeze over the water.
Bring your EpiPen or inhaler too (better safe than sorry). This is a popular area that is frequented by people jogging, riding bikes, and walking dogs; just be aware of your surroundings.
PARKING Park where you can. You may find something on 6th Street or on Callowhill Street but GIVE YOURSELF AT LEAST 20 MINS TO FIND PARKING
This might be a good time to ride SEPTA or rideshare options.
