Members-Only In-Person Rail Park Lecture and Tour

Phase One of the Philadelphia Rail Park is now open.

The plans for the whole park reach across miles of historic rail lines, connecting 10+ neighborhoods from Northern Liberties to Brewerytown. The idea is that the site will become a greenway, filled with pathways and plants, with open spaces and inviting faces, and all kinds of programming that will serve Philadelphians and visitors alike.

This lecture and tour will cover a portion of the park that has been built over an abandoned railroad viaduct in Phase One.

Accessibility: The walking tour will start at the accessible entrance on Noble Street just east of Broad. The trail ends at Callowhill Street, which is not accessible, so one would have to return to the Noble Street entrance to use the accessible exit. The path is a combination of chip seal and wooden plank walkways, with a slight incline.

Rain Date:  Tuesday, March 31st
