Just in time for the high season, nine banners with trail etiquette messages were installed today on Schuylkill Banks.
The messages include sharing the path, slowing down and being courteous.
Over 800,000 people use Schuylkill Banks annually and, on beautiful warm days, the number of people using the path can make you think you are on I-76 on a Phillies/Eagles game day. User conflicts are not uncommon and The Circuit Coalition decided this was a good place to tastefully communicate some messages about civility and safety.
Many were involved in making these banners possible: the William Penn Foundation, Schuylkill River Development Corporation, Maskar Design, Philadelphia Parks and Recreation, the Narducci Brothers, Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission and the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia.
|Three of each of these banners appear along the trail between the Connector Bridge and the new skate park|
See you on The Circuit!
