After months, if not years of waiting, Phase One of the Rail Park is officially open to the public. The quarter-mile long park transforms the former elevated train lines of the Reading Viaduct it into a lush public park. Once all phases are complete, it will eventually snake through many Philadelphia neighborhoods and be twice the length and width of its New York counterpart, the High Line.
Hundreds attended the official opening Thursday got the chance to be the first to take a stroll, have a swing, or enjoy a picnic in Philadelphia's newest park. More information on the Rail Park and all of its phases can be found here.
Below are a handful of photos from the opening.
