The Rail Park is a vision for a three mile linear park and multi-use pathway connecting 10+ Philadelphia neighborhoods and 50 city blocks along the site of former Reading and Pennsylvania Railroad lines. Open to the public since June 2018, Phase One of the Rail Park transformed a quarter-mile elevated section of viaduct from Broad and Noble streets up to the 1100 block of Callowhill Street in Philadelphia, serving as an award winning proof of concept. The development of Phase One was led by Center City District, in partnership with the City of Philadelphia, SEPTA and Friends of the Rail Park.
In this presentation, Friends of the Rail Park’s Executive Director, Rebecca Cordes Chan, will share the preliminary results of FRP's recent visioning and feasibility study and FRP's vision for positioning the park as a partner in comprehensive community development in the 10+ neighborhoods the Rail Park is a part of.
