TEDxPhiladelphia Adventure with the Rail Park »

TEDxPhiladelphia is excited to present an Adventure with Friends of the Rail Park. The morning of April 8, join Friends of the Rail Park board members for a street-level walking tour of the proposed site of Philadelphia's next great public space.

This street-level tour will follow along elevated and submerged sections of the former Reading Railroad, and tour leaders will share stories of its history and visions for its future.


Time: Please be advised that the two tours will begin promptly at 10am and 10:15am and conclude around noon.

Location: Beginning at the northwest corner of N. 21st St. and Pennsylvania Ave. (near the Rodin museum) and concluding at 12th and Noble.

Donation: $25. We ask for a donation of $25 for each tour participant, which goes to support Friends of the Rail Park.

What to wear: Please wear sturdy shoes and dress for the weather! Walking tours will cover a distance of 1.5 miles.
