Enjoy Free Fishing At Philly Parks. Get There With GoPhillyGo

Are you interested in learning how to fish, but not sure if you want to invest in fishing gear and a license? GoPhillyGo can help you plan a trip to free fishing events happening at parks in Philly that are accessible without a car. These family friendly events have all the gear you need, and as a bonus, you don’t need a fishing license to participate. All you need to do is show up, and enjoy the relaxation that fishing provides. 

Every time you plan a trip with GoPhillyGo, you help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and show your commitment to the environment. The best way to get walking, biking, and transit directions to these free fishing events and much more is to download the GoPhillyGo Android app or save the mobile site to your device’s home screen. 

Many people who learn how to fish at a young age, enjoy it regularly for the rest of their lives. In addition, fishing is a great way for families to bond in a relaxed atmosphere outdoors. GoPhillyGo makes it easy for you and your family to experience the joy of fishing without the hassle of driving.
