Philadelphia, the largest city in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, was founded in 1682 and is one of the oldest municipalities in the United States. Playing a key role in the American Revolution, Philadelphia is where the Declaration of Independence was signed and even served as the US Capital for a brief period. During the industrial revolution many early immigrants to Philadelphia were from Germany and Ireland. Greater Philadelphia is home to numerous universities and colleges that have distinguished it as a major hub for higher education.
The Schuylkill River flows through Philadelphia and you’ll find the famous and historical Boathouse Row on the east bank of the river. The Boathouse Row consists of a row of 15 different boathouses where rowing clubs train and compete. Gentle Giant was founded by college rowers in 1980 and is proud to recruit many of our employees from the college rowing programs in and around Philadelphia. The Philadelphia Museum of Art also lies along the Schuylkill River where you will find the famous “Rocky Steps” and bronze statue of Rocky Balboa. All of this sits within Fairmount Park, which when combined with the Wissahickon Valley Park makes up the largest urban park in America.
