Independence National Historical ParkThe grassy depression in front of you marks the location of Dock Creek, a spring-fed, tidal stream that flowed here when Philadelphia was founded. Its waters emptied into the Delaware River about four blocks ahead of you.By 1767, city wastes had fouled the water so badly that sections of the creek were arched over and covered by Dock Street. Today only traces of the creek bed remain.
