South of Fairmount Dam, the Schuylkill River Trail is known as Schuylkill Banks, a linear park that hosts a variety of entertainment and recreational events throughout the year. Included in this stretch is a boardwalk that extends the trail past Locust Street. The boardwalk is a 2,000 foot long concrete structure running parallel to the eastern shore of the river from Locust Street to the stair tower on the south side of the South Street Bridge. A 460’ long ramp also links the boardwalk to the north side of the South Street Bridge, providing ADA access and an easier connection for people with bicycles. This project provides an important link to the Schuylkill River Trail and Center City from University City and West Philadelphia. Learn more: https://www.schuylkillbanks.org/
