A Construction Update
Our partner for Phase 1 of the Rail Park, Center City District, recently shared an update on the site construction and we want to share it with you, too.
Traversing across Philadelphia, just north of Center City, are 3 miles of unused, obsolete rail lines that were built by the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad—the railroad company that once helped build our nation.
The Rail Park is a vision for a greenway that will serve pedestrians, bicyclists, neighbors, and visitors alike. The space will have safe, beautiful pathways and gathering spaces with educational, arts, culture, health, and wellness programs.
To infinity and beyond...? #strangestuffyouseeontherailpark We love that the Rail Park has inspired artists of all different kinds of medium over the past years and we hope to embrace that artistic state of mind as we build out the entire project.View
A very special thanks to our friends at @thephilly10k for donating some of the proceeds of the race to @therailpark and @ccdparks. Who knows maybe someday we'll be hosting races along the entire park?View
