During the planning phase of the Bartram's Mile trail segment, the City of Philadelphia and its partners held a series of public meetings in order to determine what neighbors and trail users would like to get out of the space. One of the ideas that came out of those meeting was to repurpose an industrial pier along Bartram's Mile for recreational use. Based on a study conducted by Urban Engineers, it is feasible to rehabilitate the southern pier near the trail entrance at 49th Street and Botanic Avenue for recreational use. The design of the pier is complete and construction is underway. The pier is expected to be open for use by the spring of 2022.
