The Upper Roxborough Reservoir Preserve is a 34-acre park bound by Port Royal Ave, Lare St, Summit Ave, and Eva St in Roxborough, Philadelphia. There’s a small parking lot on the corner of Port Royal and Lare. Stairs lead up to the path around the park where you’ll see views of the reservoir, a scenic field, and woods. There are two vistas along the path where you’ll find views of Upper Roxborough and the Center City skyline. The Upper Roxborough Reservoir Preserve is a great place to bring kids and for dog-walking (dogs must be on a leash).
