Philadelphia Pop-up Park Makes List Of World's Best Urban Beaches

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Well, this is exciting.

Travel site has ranked a Philadelphia park among the best urban beaches – in the world. And it's not even a permanent fixture!

The article, which was published on the Huffington Post, selected eight city beaches from all over the globe.

Spots like Berlin's City-Wide and London's Camden Beach made the list, and so did the City of Brotherly Love's very own Spruce Street Harbor Park.

"The highlight is a traditional wooden boardwalk lined with street food stalls and arcade games in old shipping containers," writes.

What's more, Spruce Street is a temporary "pop-up" park in its first year and has only been open a little over a month. It's slated to close at the end of August.

The only other American urban beach to make the Post roundup was the North Avenue Beach in Chicago.
