Lardner’s Point Park Groundbreaking

DRCC Announces the construction of a new park

The Delaware River City Corporation is announcing the creation of a riverfront park on 4.5 acres of land immediately south of the Tacony Palmyra Bridge and in front of the City of Philadelphia Water Department’s Lardner’s Point Pump Station, Construction will begin in November of 2011 with park completion anticipated in May 2012. The Lardner’s Point Park project is an initial signature public access point that is part of the larger proposed Delaware Riverfront Greenway envisioned to encompass an approximate eleven-mile trail system along the Delaware River from Allegheny Avenue to Bucks County Line.

The work will include demolition and removal of concrete ramp structures and concrete and asphalt paving throughout the site. A river overlook and fishing pier at the river’s edge will be a part of the new park along with, riparian edge restoration, the creation of tidal wetlands, and the restoration of a riverbank forest area for picnicking and passive recreational activities. The park will be a gateway and trailhead for the Delaware River Heritage Trail and will be a link in the East Coast Greenway that runs from Maine toFlorida. This trailhead will include a drinking fountain, walking trails, park and trail furniture and the necessary infrastructure to support these amenities.

The Greenway Plan for the Delaware River is intended to transform much of the vacant, former industrial properties along the riverfront into a destination frontage that will bring new distinction and identity to the City and stimulate the economy and culture of the entire city.
