Kelly Drive, or more formally, John B. Kelly Drive, is a road that winds for 4 miles (6.4 km) along the Schuylkill River from Eakins Oval before the Philadelphia Museum of Art to the neighborhood of East Falls, Philadelphia, just south of Wissahickon Creek, where it connects with Lincoln Drive.
East River Drive
Formerly known as East River Drive, it was renamed "Kelly Drive" in the 1980s to honor John B. Kelly, Jr., a Philadelphia City Councilman, Olympic rower, and the brother of Grace Kelly. Alongside Kelly Drive, a statue of Kelly's father, Olympic rower John B. Kelly, Sr., has been placed at the grandstand near the national racecourse finish line. Along Kelly Drive is Boathouse Row, the Ellen Phillips Samuel Memorial Sculpture Garden, and a multi-use recreational trail that is part of Fairmount Park.
West River Drive
The former West River Drive, on the other side of the river, has been renamed in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Frederic Remington's Cowboy, his only full sized sculpture, on Kelly Drive.
