Parks on Tap kicked off in 2016 to engage the Philadelphia community and give back to the neighborhood parks. A portion of all proceeds every year are donated to help restore and maintain Philly’s parks. Thanks to Parks on Tap’s past donations, improvements have included trail work and maintenance, tree plantings, new signage, free music, movie programs, and more.

Parks on Tap is located inside some of Philadelphia’s best outdoor locations. Each park is accessible via public transportation, car, or ride-sharing app. If driving, guests are strongly encouraged to not leave any valuables in their vehicles. Bikes are not permitted inside the beer garden. Limited bike parking is available, but patrons should bring their own lock. For more information about Parks on Tap, visit
