Through the efforts of the City of Philadelphia and the Tookany-Tacony-Frankford Watershed Partnership, once derelict Frankford Creek is becoming a greenway linking Tacony Creek Park with the Delaware River and the East Coast Greenway.  Join Bob Thomas for an exploratory tour of new and proposed park and greenway development along once-neglected Frankford Creek as well as several local parks and a walk on the East Coast Greenway down to Port Richmond, including a stellar view of the Delaware River.  We conclude with an option dinner at an interesting local restaurant discussing the importance of The Circuit Trails in the revitalization and appreciation of the history of this industrial waterfront.
