Sounds of the Rail Park

Sounds of the Rail Park explores the sights, sounds and spaces of the Rail Park.

Ten years ago, a small group of community members looked at the rusty rails that ran through their neighborhood and saw potential for a beautiful, usable public space. When completed, the Rail Park will connect more than ten Philadelphia neighborhoods with three miles of green space. A space for everyone: young and old, athlete and artist, neighbors and visitors alike. Friends of the Rail Park presents: ‘Sounds of the Park’, an audio guide to sights, sounds and spaces of the Rail Park.

Sounds of the Rail Park is available on Apple, Amazon, Spotify or where ever else you stream your podcasts.
