The John Heinz Wildlife Refuge at Tinicum, or just Tinicum as we usually call it, is one of my favorite places in Philly. It’s so close to the airport and so accessible from South Philly yet it feels like you’re nowhere near the city. It was established in 1972 to preserve the natural area of the marsh, to promote environmental education and allow visitors to study the wildlife.
