Building the Banks

A major part of SRDC’s mission is creating vibrant riverfront greenway space along the tidal Schuylkill River and enhancing connections to the greenway. The Schuylkill Banks vision calls for trails and greenway running along both banks of the Schuylkill River wherever possible between the Fairmount Dam and the Delaware River.

2.3 miles of this 8 mile stretch have already been completed, along with bridge enhancements and other accessibility improvements. SRDC is currently working with public and private partners to plan, design and build additional trail segments and improve neighborhood connections to the greenway.
