South to Christian

SRDC worked with the City of Philadelphia and the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) to design and build a trail segment along the east bank of the Schuylkill from South Street to the vicinity of Christian Street. This project extends the popular Schuylkill River Trail by an additional 1,400 feet, closing part of the gap between the Boardwalk and Grays Ferry Crescent. The north end of this trail segment ties in to the southern end of the Schuylkill Banks Boardwalk and the stair tower to the South Street Bridge. CHOP built a bridge to connect the South to Cristian trail segment to the elevated public plaza around its new facility at South Street and Schuylkill Avenue.
