Wednesday, April 24, Parks on Tap returns for its fourth season, bringing pop-up beer gardens to neighborhood parks across the city.
Each week, beer and food stands, seating and tables, hammocks, games and restrooms will be set up at a different public green space. Most weeks, the beer garden will be open Wednesday through Sunday.
This year, Parks on Tap will kick off at the Azalea Garden by the Philadelphia Museum of Art and visit new locations, including Fisher Park (Olney), McMichael Park (East Falls) and the Discovery Center (East Fairmount Park), throughout the season.
Parks on Tap will run for 23 weeks, ending Sunday, Sept. 29. The program aims to engage the Philadelphia community and give back to neighborhood parks.
