The Friends of the Rail park

We are a small, determined team that’s been working to create the Rail Park for years. Now, energy is building. We’ve got more support than ever. And we will not stop working until The Rail Park is built. Then we’ll care for it, like we have all these years, and we’ll fill it with programs that benefit our city, our neighborhoods, and the people of Philadelphia.

Friends of The Rail Park is working in collaboration with the Center City District, the City of Philadelphia, and Philadelphia Parks & Recreation towards implementing the first phase of The Rail Park and ensuring its ongoing maintenance and care.
