The Fairmount Water Works is opening up their historic Kelly Pool area for tours! Come join the Water Department on a hard hat tour that takes you below the streets to the Kelly Pool area. Eye-level with the Schuylkill, you’ll walk the same underground paths as a royal family and Olympic swimmers during a behind-the-scenes look at Philadelphia’s first tourist destination and hear about the future expansion of the landmark that pioneered engineering, tourism, and environmental awareness in Philadelphia.

Visitors will also experience the Water Works’ new music and light installation provided by the Blair Brothers and Luce Group. This is where “Tributaries” was recently performed to a sold-out crowd.

The “Milling Around” tours will be provided every Sunday at 2:00pm. Although the tour is free, reservations are required due to high demand. Please note that this is a hard-hat tour, and may not be accessible for all of our visitors.

Don’t miss out on this exciting walk through Philadelphia’s history, reserve your tickets now!
