The Rail Park

Ian and I have been living in Philadelphia for almost 2 years now.  I am still amazed at the amazing new finds I’m discovering in the city – restaurants, architecture, parks, etc.  A few weeks ago, my mom came for her annual visit, and she suggested that we visit The Rail Park after reading about it in a newspaper article.  Funnily enough, I had no idea what she was referring to!

The Rail Park is basically Philadelphia’s response to NYC’s High Line.  They are using defunct railroad viaducts to build this urban, sky-level park.  The project has 3 phases, and currently only phase 1 is complete and open to the public.  It’s a short 1/4 mile stretch of the park filled with steel swing benches, lots of greenery, and plenty of seating.
