    Before the wooden boardwalk and lounge-style swings transformed a strip of the old Reading Viaduct into the Rail Park, videographer Cory Popp was already a fan of the Callowhill public space. "I've been a frequent explorer of the Rail Park (the viaduct as we called it back then) since 2010 when I fell in love with it after my first visit," Popp said.

    Long-awaited Rail Park opens first phase
    The opening of Philadelphia 's long-awaited Rail Park means more than just a public green space. To many, it means residential development, it means commercial growth, and-possibly most importantly-it means a heightened sense of community in Philly's Center City. At least that's the takeaway city officials stressed Thursday morning during the opening of the park's first phase.
