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.

It started slowly, on land that lay unwanted. Untended. Unused. Then, bit by bit, unplanted, unplanned, it grew.
.
It grew between tracks, and along stone walls. It grew unseen, right over our heads. It grew between buildings. It grew in the dark. Eventually it grew into something real.

The Rail Park has been growing for years. Gathering energy, gaining momentum. And this park—our park—is about to burst into life. #therailpark
