Bartram’s Mile Feedback Session

July 24, 2013 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The City wants to build a high-quality river park for Southwest residents called Bartram’s Mile. Give us your thoughts so it can be the best park possible!

Philadelphia Parks and Recreation, Bartram’s Garden, and Schuylkill River Development Corporation want to transform one mile of underutilized Schuylkill Riverfront land from the Grays Ferry Bridge to 58th Street into a new trail and recreation space called “Bartram’s Mile.” The City hopes that this will create a high-quality green space for Southwest Philadelphia, extend the Schuylkill River Trail, and activate vacant land.
This second round of public meetings will share the latest design for Bartram’s Mile and get your thoughts on how to make it better. Dinner will be provided!

This feedback session will be held at:

Bartram Village
5404 Gibson Drive
Turn at “Bartram’s Garden” sign off Lindbergh Boulevard, then bear right.
If you cannot attend and would like to submit input online, please visit www.planphilly.com/bartramsmile.
