The PHS Pop Up Garden at the
Viaduct Rail Park is now closed
Thank you for a wonderful season.
Located at the Viaduct Rail Park, 10th & Hamilton Streets, the garden transformed an unlikely space into a fabulous community asset in a historic neighborhood that is undergoing a creative rebirth. The design of the Pop Up Garden at the Viaduct Rail Park was a merging of the overhead rail structure with green urban space, inspired by railroad cars and remnants of what had been an abandoned site, and engaged visitors with the emerging ecology and cultural history of the rail line.
Major support for the PHS Pop Up Garden at the Viaduct Rail Park has been provided by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage for creative installations by designers, artists and historians that will interpret the site and introduce visitors to the rich architectural heritage of the three-mile park. Official Partners are Friends of the Rail Park, the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, Arts & Crafts Holdings, HFA Bridge, and the Reading Company.
Promotional Partners are Victory Brewing Company, the LandHealth Institute, and the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, which will bring the Philadelphia History Truck to the garden and coordinate artistic interventions in the neighborhood this fall.
In-Kind Partners are Belgard, IBEW98, MEB Plumbing, Patriot Fencing, Salvage & Craft, Stones - Philly Stones League, ThinkGreen Landscape Architecture & Construction and Woodworks Timber Forge.
