Schuylkill Banks Boardwalk Professional Reviews and Guides
"The center was founded in 1965 and inhabits former farmland. What is now 340 acres of land started as a mere 11 acres gifted for preservation and education. It is now the largest privately owned open space within Philadelphia.
The center is almost always bursting with children, as its main goal is to educate about the natural world. It is a great place to introduce children to hiking and nature. From woods to meadows, ponds, and wetlands, the Schuylkill Center has it all, including 4 miles of trails to hike. You can grab a trail map inside the visitor center or outside of the building’s main entrance."
