Support the Rail Park


Just a year ago, Governor Wolf, Mayor Kenney, other elected officials, and many supporters joined the Center City District to break ground on constructing the first phase of the Rail Park. Now, in the final months of construction, the Center City District Foundation is working hard to close the small remaining gap needed to fully fund the project. You can help make this transformational new park a reality by making a gift today. Our Rail Park Benefactor Program offers a number of

options to support the park, including naming opportunities for park swings, benches, tiered seating and hanging planter boxes. Only a few remain!

Leave a lasting legacy by visiting supportccdf.org/railparkbenefactor.

You can also make a donation in any amount and designate it toward construction of the Rail Park at supportccdf.org/donate.

The Center City District (CCD), Central Philadelphia Development Corporation (CPDC) and Center City District Foundation (CCDF) work together to enhance the vitality and competitiveness of Philadelphia’s downtown. In 1991 the business leadership organization CPDC created the CCD business improvement district to deliver daily services with the goal of making Center City clean and safe. This helped transform Center City into a vibrant 24-hour downtown, attractive to businesses, residents, students, shoppers and tourists. In addition, the CCD is responsible for the management of Dilworth, Sister Cities, John F. Collins and Cret Parks, four extraordinary public spaces in the heart of Center City. CCDF, the charitable affiliate of the CCD, was launched in 2016 to support the next generation of public space improvements in Center City Philadelphia.
