Phase 1 of the Rail Park is now nearly funded, thanks to a $3.5 million grant from the state that was just announced last Friday!
We are incredibly grateful to every Rail Park member, donor, supporter, and partner who helped make this moment possible. We specifically want to thank Governor Wolfe, Mayor Kenney, Councilman Mark Squilla, State Rep O'Brien, Paul Levy and the Center City District, SEPTA, Poor Richard's Charitable Trust, the Knight Foundation, the William Penn Foundation, the McClean Foundation, Smith & Diction, numerous private donors, and everyone else who has supported this project over the years.

We are beyond excited, and with just a little more citywide support, we have a chance of breaking ground by the end of the year.
As we prepare for construction, there's never been a better time for a site tour. So get your ticket here, and hear all about what's ahead for the Rail Park.
