Spring Garden Street Greenway: Summary of Public Input

Thanks to the fundraising efforts of the Northern Liberties Neighbors Association and the generous giving of several local foundations, public agencies, and local organizations, this project presents a major opportunity to make strategic public and institutional investments in the public realm to reconnect Philadelphia’s vibrant streets to its long-dormant waterfront. With implementation funding already earmarked, neighborhood residents, workers, and visitors can expect to see some positive changes within the next year and a half. The growing energy to transform the Delaware River waterfront into a publicly-accessible amenity to the city is a vision which depends on small-scale and short-term interventions like this one.
