Coalition for Philadelphia's Riverfronts Launch

An invitation from Next Great City and PennFuture to attend an event on Tuesday, October 6th

Philadelphia is on its way to becoming a great riverfront city full of cultural, economic and environmental potential. We invite you to be part of this exciting growth by joining the Coalition for Philadelphia’s Riverfronts (CPR).

CPR will work to create a scenic walking, biking, skating and blading trail that is connected to the city and follows the edges of the Schuylkill and Delaware rivers.

At the launch, the Coalition for Philadelphia's Riverfronts will talk about how the new greenway will help the city’s economy, the ways it will support Greenworks’ goal to make Philadelphia the greenest city in America, and how a continuous, connected trail along our rivers will benefit everyone who lives in or visits Philadelphia. And there’s more! Thanks to help from our partners as the Pennsylvania Environmental Council (PEC) and the Schuylkill River Development Corporation, Hidden River Outfitters will offer discounted kayaking after the event so you can get out and enjoy the river.

Come to help Philly reach its potential as a great riverfront city.
Stay for discounted kayaking!
