Lloyd Hall

Philadelphia’s only public boathouse


Rent your bikes or rollerblades at Fairmount Park’s recreation center before heading up the trail along Kelly Drive or stop in for a quick bite at the concession stand.

Situated on the banks of the Schuylkill River just north of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Lloyd Hall is the only public athletic facility on Boathouse Row and the best point of departure for your outing into Fairmount Park.

In addition to equipment rentals and snacks, Lloyd Hall offers classes in yoga, dance and painting. It’s also home to the Philadelphia Juggling Club and the Fairmount Sports Association, which runs a basketball League for boys and girls.

Come Prepared

There is limited free parking on the street outside the building, along the Art Museum’s entrance drive. Restrooms are open during the day and are accessible from both inside and outside the building.

Don’t Miss

In spring, don’t miss the amazing display of color in the Azalea Garden, located between Lloyd Hall and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Outsider’s Tip

Lloyd Hall has great barbecue facilities for a relaxing family picnic on the banks for the Schuylkill River.
