Dockside Provides One of Philadelphia’s Best Locations for Summer Activities
Philadelphia, PA, July 2015: Summer is one of the best seasons to be in Philadelphia.

Living in Philly is the ideal way to experience all that the city has to offer – and nobody has better front-row seats to all the activity and adventure than those who live at The Residences at Dockside. Residents of this popular, gated waterfront community enjoy an intimate, private enclave that is quietly set apart on the Delaware River, yet remarkably close to the best that Philadelphia has to offer.
Just steps from The Residences at Dockside, Penn’s Landing and the Delaware River waterfront beckon, offering everything from summer concerts and multi-cultural festivals to free outdoor movies under the stars. Paddle Penn’s Landing offers single kayaks, tandems, and even swan-shaped pedal boats for rent. Free yoga classes are offered every day at Race Street Pier. Dockside residents can enjoy riding on the bike path or running along the river, having waterfront picnics, and much more, including the popular new Spruce Street Harbor Park.
