Schuylkill River Trail

Schuylkill River Trail

Schuylkill River Trail

The Schuylkill Banks Park and trail in Philadelphia is approximately 10 miles in length, providing recreational space in the center of this beautiful and historic city and serves thousands of pedestrians, runners and cyclists daily. The land between the railroad tracks and the river becomes too narrow to continue the Schuylkill River Trail southward on land past Locust Street. To solve this problem, the City of Philadelphia and SRDC built a 2,000-foot-long concrete structure, the “Boardwalk”, running parallel to the eastern shore of the river from Locust Street to the new stair tower on the south side of the South Street Bridge. Pennoni provided civil, structural, and electrical engineering services, stormwater management design and permitting, erosion control design, and the design of an LED lighting system at the recreational plaza.
