The Rail Park is a new kind of park in Philadelphia. It’s raw, it’s beautiful, it’s happening.

The park has three sections: the Viaduct, the Cut, and the Tunnel. Three miles, all told. 10 neighborhoods. 50 city blocks. It all stands on the unused tracks of the old Reading Railroad, connecting Fairmount Park to Center City, running from Brewerytown to the Northern Liberties. The Rail Park will be a green space, a gathering space, and a public space for all.


This three minute video is an excellent introduction to The Rail Park. Please send it along to friends, family members, colleagues, and spread the word about this transformative initiative.
