Just behind the Art Museum is the southern part of Fairmount Park and the Schuylkill River. This is one of the nicest parts of Philadelphia and the easiest place to take a bike ride. This ride will take you up the east side of the Schuylkill River and down the west side for a relaxing 8-mile ride that will show you some of the beautiful and historic sights of the city. Fairmount Park is one of the largest and oldest municipally-operated park systems in the United States. The park encompasses over 9,000 acres and shows how government and citizens can work together to create useful public spaces. The bike path that is part of Fairmount Park makes it very easy to take a leisurely ride through this beautiful landscape.
