Ten years ago, a small group of community members looked at the rusty rails that run through their Philadelphia neighborhoods and saw potential. Potential for a usable, beautiful public space. When completed, the Rail Park will connect more than ten neighborhoods with three miles of continuous 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 the sights, sounds, and spaces of the Rail Park.

    Mindfulness in Practice, with Nalaverse

    Mindfulness in Practice, with Nalaverse

    In this episode of Sounds of the Rail Park we're joined by Nalaverse, a Black centered, women led, virtual mental wellness platform, to discuss mindfulness and the value of access to nature and outdoor space for health and wellbeing.

    It's no secret that in a big city like Philadelphia, it can be difficult to find a place for exercise or mindfulness away from the busy streets. Phase One of the Rail Park sits between Chinatown North and Callowhill, offering a green space for everyone in an area with very limited access to parks, providing a place for us to move around, connect with nature and breathe in the open air.

    Phase 1 is open. Plan your next visit.
