Ten years ago, a small group of community members looked at the rusty rails that run through their neighborhoods and saw potential. Potential for a usable, beautiful public space. When completed, the Rail Park will connect more than ten neighborhoods with three miles of continuous green space. A space for everyone: young and old, athlete and artist, neighbors and visitors alike. Friends of the Rail Park presents ‘Sounds of the Park’, an audio guide to the sights, sounds, and spaces of the Rail Park.
Phase One is open. Plan your next visit.
