Launch of Coalition for Philadelphia’s Riverfronts

From the Next Great City newsletter:

After generations of being physically and psychologically cut off from our riverfronts, Philadelphia is ready to reconnect.
The Coalition for Philadelphia's Riverfronts (CPR) will work to improve the quality of Philadelphia's riverfronts by establishing an urban, high quality, continuous, connected and publicly accessible greenway along the Schuylkill and Delaware rivers.
Please join us on October 6 at 5:00 p.m. next to the Philadelphia Museum of Art on the Schuylkill River for the campaign's official launch.

Learn about how a greenway will help the city’s economy, help make Philadelphia the greenest city in America and benefit everyone who lives, works or visits in Philadelphia.

And there’s more! Thanks to help from the Pennsylvania Environmental Council (PEC) and the Schuylkill River Development Corporation, Hidden River Outfitters will offer discounted kayaking after the event so you can get out and enjoy the river. For more information please contact Rachel Vassar at 215-545-9691 or .
