Schuylkill Boardwalk Skyline

Schuylkill Boardwalk Skyline

The Schuylkill Banks Boardwalk is part of the Schuylkill River Trail and the East Coast Greenway Alliance, which stretches from Maine to Florida. The 15-foot wide concrete expanse connects Philadelphia’s Graduate Hospital and Rittenhouse neighborhoods, and hosts approximately 19,000 users per week. The space features widened overlooks for viewing the city’s hidden river and breathtaking skyline. After dark, solar powered lights illuminate the path.
