The Bartram House is closed until further notice, but you can still visit the grounds and hike along the tidal Schuylkill River

Bartram’s Garden is a National Historic Landmark, operated by the John Bartram Association in cooperation with Philadelphia Parks and Recreation. Its grounds encompass 45 acres of parkland, wildlife habitats, tidal wetlands, and a reclaimed meadow. Visitors can tour the gardens and explore the riverfront. Bartram’s Garden offers programs for all audiences, including a Little Explorers program for toddlers, summer camps, and art and gardening classes for families and adults. The grounds are free and open to the public year-round, dawn to dusk, except on city-observed holidays. Bartram’s Garden is easily accessible by the route 36 trolley, and bike parking is available along the Harley Ave. entrance, near the Welcome Center.
