"After months of talks, the city announced Tuesday that they acquired a swing bridge owned by Conrail to extend the trail. The city said a full announcement of the deal will be made at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 1 at Schuylkill Banks park. ... The approaches on each side, and the bridge in its entirety, will be repurposed into a functional, biking and pedestrian crossing that will connect the Grays Ferry Crescent Trail to the Bartram's Mile section of the Schuylkill River Trail system. Detailed design work is already underway, with construction projected to begin in 2018."

This Wednesday at 10am, Conrail will be holding a press event to announce their donation of an abandoned railroad swing bridge, just south of the Grays Ferry Avenue Bridge, to the City of Philadelphia. SRDC is working with the City to design and build a new, fully operating swing bridge at this location, called the Schuylkill Crossing. Please join us at the Grays Ferry Crescent Esplanade (where movies are shown) near the Schuylkill Ave. & Wharton St. entrance. We hope to see you there!

This past Tuesday night (10/24/17) @ St. John Neumann Place, Councilman Kenyatta Johnson and Parks and Recreation Commissioner Kathryn Ott Lovell gave the 50+ community members in attendance the low down on the closing of Vare and the future plans. Because of an earlier incident, Parks and Rec hired structural engineers to evaluate the center and deliver a report. It was this report that prompted the closure to the center. There are structural issues of the 100 year old building that may cause a safety concern. The Councilman, working closely with the center will fund the $150,000 temporary repairs to shore up the center as a temporary fix. Provided contractors can be lined up quickly, Vare intends to reopen ONLY the first floor in 4 – 6 weeks. The long term plans is to utilize the Mayors Parks and Rec Rebuild program to renovate Vare as a state of the art facility. Current program leaders would be first consulted for ideas on new facility then the topic would then be brought to the community. Many of the programs that were housed at Vare are continuing at other neighborhood spaces or at cooperating facilities outside of the neighborhood. Please contact the coordinators of those programs, Parks and Recreations or the Councilman’s Office for more information. The community can help during this transition by establishing and maintaining a safe corridor for the children going to and from facilities out of the immediate area for programs.
