More about SRDC and Schuylkill Banks
SRDC and Schuylkill Banks: SRDC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working with the City of Philadelphia to revitalize the tidal Schuylkill River corridor from the Fairmount Dam to the Delaware River, branded as Schuylkill Banks.
The centerpiece of this effort is the construction, programming, and maintenance of a continuous eight-mile riverfront trail and greenway with associated access points and amenities along the Banks.
The first phase of trail construction, which is well underway, will connect the Fairmount Water Works and Bartram’s Garden, both National Historic Landmarks.
Subsequent phases of trail construction will extend Schuylkill Banks to Fort Mifflin, another National Historic Landmark, situated near the confluence of the Schuylkill and Delaware Rivers.
