Rail Park Construction Update, November 2017

Some recent photos from the construction site:

Support the Rail Park
As we reach the end of 2017, the Rail Park is really taking shape. In the New Year we will start work on the 13th Street bridge and will open the park in time for spring. Continuing contributions are closing the small, remaining gap, but you can still help the Center City District Foundation fully fund the project. Make this transformational park a reality by making a gift today.

Our Rail Park Benefactor Program offers a number of donor options, including naming

opportunities for park swings, benches, tiered seating and hanging planter boxes. Only a few remain!

Leave a lasting legacy by visiting supportccdf.org/railparkbenefactor.

You can also make a donation in any amount and designate it toward construction of the Rail Park at fundtherailpark.org


The Center City District (CCD), Central Philadelphia Development Corporation (CPDC) and Center City District Foundation (CCDF) work together to enhance the vitality and competitiveness of Philadelphia’s downtown. In 1991 the business leadership organization CPDC created the CCD business improvement district to deliver daily services with the goal of making Center City clean and safe. This helped transform Center City into a vibrant 24-hour downtown, attractive to businesses, residents, students, shoppers and tourists. In addition, the CCD is responsible for the management of Dilworth, Sister Cities, John F. Collins and Cret Parks, four extraordinary public spaces in the heart of Center City. CCDF, the charitable affiliate of the CCD, was launched in 2016 to support the next generation of public space improvements in Center City Philadelphia.
