Philadelphia, PA - Riverfront North Partnership, formerly known as the Delaware River City Corporation (DRCC), is announcing a rebrand in conjunction with a new website to be launched by March 15, 2018. The non-profit is creating an active 11-mile Greenway of trails and parks along the Delaware River to be known as Riverfront North, connecting Philadelphia neighborhoods to nature and offering areas for recreation, community building, and environmental stewardship activities.
The non-profit’s projects have stimulated and energized the entire surrounding area. Riverfront North has proved to be a sought after amenity for recent developments and surrounding projects such as: the MaST Charter School’s new school facility building; developments in the Frankford Arsenal; and re-development of the old St. Vincent’s site.
“We’ve hit a critical point in our development of the Greenway and we’re starting to see a real impact” said former Congressman and Chairman of the Riverfront North Partnership Board, Bob Borski, who was instrumental in the origin of the Greenway vision. “Our progress has outgrown our former name. Over the past few years, we’ve made great strides in reshaping Northeast Philadelphia’s riverfront landscape that will benefit residents and visitors for generations to come. Reconnecting the community to the river and activating the spaces with programming has brought about an invigorating energy for the whole area.”
To coincide with the rebrand and new website, the non-profit is also doubling the number of events held along the parks and trails including: City-Wide Streets Cleanup Day (April 7th); Earth Day Festival (April 21st); Riverfront North Yoga Series (May 6th); their 8th Annual Spring Fling (May 17th); and Love Your Park Day (May 19th).
