Philadelphia Parks and Recreation lead the development of the Bartram's Mile segment of Schuylkill Banks, which runs along the west bank of the Schuylkill River between Grays Ferry Avenue and 56th Street, on either side of Bartram's Garden. This greenway will eventually connect to the Grays Ferry Crescent via the Schuylkill Crossing.
