Join us for a guided walk with the Delaware River Waterfront Corporation’s project manager, Christopher Dougherty, and learn what it took to get Philadelphia’s latest and longest curb-separated, bi-directional asphalt bike path and walking and running sidewalk built. You’ll learn about how parking spaces were removed, driving lanes changed, and driveways negotiated to get the trail constructed. You’ll also learn about the history of the waterfront and exciting new developments, all while walking along a beautifully landscaped trail with excellent skyline and waterfront views.
The walk starts at Washington Avenue and proceeds north to Cherry Street Pier along Columbus Boulevard for an approximately 1.5 mile walk. Cherry Street has refreshments. The trail is level with no hills and multiple benches. This is an all-access walk.
For Feet First Philly walks, we follow the City of Philadelphia’s guidance on mask requirements.
