Bartram's to 61st Street extends Schuylkill Banks an additional 1,800 feet south from Bartram's Mile to the vicinity of 61st Street. The segment features 1.6 acres of greenway, a large riverfront platform for fishing and community events, an overlook that boasts magnificent views of the city and Schuylkill, lighting for nighttime use and safety, stormwater management basins, benches, trash cans, and lawn areas. Access the trail using the 56th Street Plaza, where there are bicycle and vehicle parking options.
This trail segment will eventually connect to the sidewalks and bicycle infrastructure on Passyunk Avenue and a planned park at the base of the Passyunk Avenue Bridge.
