Skate and Play on the Waterfront at Blue Cross RiverRink

Open May 27 - September 5

Philadelphia’s first and only outdoor roller skating rink located on the beautiful Delaware River. Blue Cross RiverRink Summerfest will encompass the same footprint as Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest, creating an active oasis along the waterfront featuring a rink surrounded by unique landscaping.
This easily accessible rink provides a fun activity for kids, and a bit of nostalgia for those who used to strap on roller skates when they were kids!
