Rail Park Phase One Walking Tour

April 30, 2024



The Phase One Tour of the Rail Park gives an overview of the Rail Park’s history and highlights the nature, arts, and culture of Phase One and its surrounding communities. After years of advocacy, community conversations, and fundraising, Phase One of the Rail Park opened in June of 2018. Phase One, the first section of the Rail Park that is open to the public, was built on the original structure from the Reading Railroad and travels east from Broad Street, beginning above street level until it becomes entirely supported by the elevated viaduct structure. The tour is being provided by the Rail Park Team’s Development & Operations Associate, Vanessa Chandler, as a token of appreciation for the YMF’s continued support of the project.


This 45-minute tour is a 1/4 mile in length, beginning at 1300 Noble Street and ending at 1100 Callowhill Street. The 1300 Noble Street entrance is the only ADA accessible entrance; Attendees should plan to walk at least 1/2 mile round-trip to exit the tour.
