Directions To Philadelphia -Schuylkill River

 

Take I-76, the Schuylkill Expressway, west.

Follow I-76 West to exit 340A on the right. Note: there are two exits for 340, 340A and 340B. You will come to 340B first. You need to go past this exit. 340A is the next exit on I-76. It helps to stay in the left-center lane on I-76 till you pass the exit for 340B.

Take this exit, turn right at foot of exit and get in the left lane as you go over City Avenue Bridge across the Schuylkill River.

Stay left and follow signs for Kelly Drive. The ramp will spiral downwards in a counter-clockwise direction and will merge you onto Kelly Drive, southbound.

Move to right lane of Kelly Drive after merging at the bottom of the spiral. Take Kelly Drive past four traffic lights.

The first building on the right, between the river and Kelly Drive, is the Canoe Club. This is where the VHS boat trailer is usually parked. If you are dropping off rowers, keep an eye out for the trailer, this is where they need to meet.

You can proceed further down Kelly drive to find a parking space.

Last year Parking Passes were required to park along Kelly Drive. If you need a pass and do not have one you will be directed to park up the hill in Fairmount Park. There are a limited number of passes. They will be handed out when we meet for the car-pool to the regatta.
