GET ON BOARD

In October 2016, the Center City District (CCD) broke ground on Phase 1 of The Rail Park. Stretching from Broad Street at Noble to Callowhill between 11th and 12th Streets, this historic quarter mile will soon become our city’s newest elevated public park, with a distinctive design that celebrates our industrial past and cultural heritage.

As the excitement builds, join us on the first Wednesday of every month from 5PM-8PM as we grow awareness of the project and raise funds to close an approximately $350,000 funding gap for Phase 1 construction. 20% of all sales from each monthly Build the Rail Park Happy Hour, hosted at The Trestle Inn, will go directly to support construction.
