As we cautiously ease into Philadelphia's 'modified green phase', we are grateful for the community coming together to keep the Riverfront North trails and parks as vibrant as ever. We want to get back into these spaces with all of you, safely. In addition to new socially-distant programing, here are some independent ways to stay connected:
CLEAN UP- SOLO
Post a picture of your solo volunteer efforts (tagging @riverfrontnorth and #riverfrontnorthtrailblazer) and you can be become a volunteer Trailblazer! Riverfront North Trailblazers receive swag, exclusive offers for programs, specials from local businesses and more. Help keep the greenway clean today! *Extended to July 30th!
BE EYES ON THE TRAILS
We are so thankful to some of our regular volunteers and community members who have reached out to us upon seeing illegal dumping or safety issues along Riverfront North. Contact us at email@example.com or on social media @riverfrontnorth. We will follow up with the city on any issues we are alerted about. You can also always use the city's 311 system to report anything you see.
BECOME A TRAILBLAZER
Funds raised by new Trailblazer sign ups will support cleanups and free community programming. Sign up here.
All summer long we will be hosting FREE, physically distanced events (following all CDC guidelines with limited participants) for those looking to ease back in to park activities.
The beauty of the riverfront was on full display with countless beautiful shots from local photographers during our June Photography contest. Thanks to all who participated and congrats to @ejotto.jpeg for his winning shot along the K&T Trail. Stay tuned to our instagram for info on the next photography contest later this summer.
It's not too late to get in on our fishing contest!

These past few months, with the help of Philadelphia artist Aislinn Pentecost-Farren, we have collected stories of Bridesburg and life along the Delaware River. Below is the the final installment in our "River Ways" documentary series.
