The Schuylkill Banks Boardwalk from South Street Bridge
$18 million + under utilized waterfront =
2,000 feet of over-the-water boardwalk made of concrete.
Two Way Traffic, Just No Cars
I could easily get hung up on the $18 million
for a 2,000 foot long path.
But really, Philly needs this.
Our waterfronts are overlooked and underutilized
and fortunately others seem to be feeling the same way.
Run Little Dog, Run
This new path adds 2,000 additional feet
to the existing Schuylkill River Trail
and makes an easy pedestrian access between Locust St and South St.
The Community Garden
At the Locust Street end is a green oasis.
The Schuylkill River and Markward Parks provide a
dog park (very popular)
All surrounded by well maintained historic homes.
Enjoying a Romp in the Dog Park
From the look of things,
the whole area is enjoyed by many.
Red Doors Rule
And the reason I'm telling you this?
A Walk in the Park
Because it is ...
on the waterfront
a skyline view
money well spent
worth a visit.
Finally, Philly has done something right.
Now, if we could just get the rest of the city on board
with this revitalization thing.

South Street Bridge to Locust Street
