From the Board
Our 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.
