The Friends Rail Park Board Adds Two New Members
The Friends of the Rail Park is excited to announce the election of two new additions to the board: Mrs. Tiffany Newmuis and Mr. Allen Hall.
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.
Tonight at 7PM @myphiladelphia will be speaking about the Rail Park and its impact on Philadelphia at @johnnybrendas as part of #IgnitePhilly. . Come out and hear about us and a few other amazing Philly projects. #therailparkView

Teamwork makes the dream work. . So much has to come together to get to this point. So we could not be more grateful to every single partner, donor, construction worker, architect, supporter, anybody-er that has been there for us over the years. . We hope to bring you a park that has just as much heart as all of you. #therailparkView

Did you know that these paulownia trees are one of the reasons the Rail Park is so lush?? . Old trains used to use these seeds sort of like packing peanuts and they would spill out onto the ground and take root. . Over time these seeds grew into the trees you see today multiplying every year as new trees sprout and old trees die. #railparkfactsView
