The Rail Park under construction.

The Rail Park is a new, beautiful, three-mile park that's in the works in Philadelphia.

Phase 1 of the Rail Park is a 1/4 mile stretch of elevated park that stretches from 1300 Noble Street up onto the Viaduct. It's free and open to the public every day from 7am–10pm.

The full vision for the Rail Park is for a three-mile public greenway that will be twice the length and twice the width of NYC's High Line. It will have pathways and gathering spaces that will serve pedestrians, bicyclists, neighbors, and visitors alike.

Behind the park, there's a nonprofit with one simple mission: to bring the Rail Park to life.

Note:  The above descriptive information came from the organization's home page in December 2019.
