About Us

Mission

To complete and sustain the riverfront trail and network of parks along the Delaware River that connect residents of urban neighborhoods to nature, offering unparalleled recreational, community building, and environmental education activities.

Vision

Create an active trail and network of parks along the Delaware River celebrated as the community’s shared backyard.

The Delaware River City Corp. (DRCC) was formed in 2004 as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization by former Congressman Robert Borski. In 2006,  the City of Philadelphia named the DRCC to facilitate the implementation of the North Delaware Riverfront Greenway Plan.

 


The Greenway Plan:

  • Eleven miles of riverfront greenway, including trails, parks, green connector streets, and trailheads with parking and restrooms.

  • Neighbors, local civic organizations, businesses, and visitors engaged in maintaining and assisting with the security of the Greenway.

  • A volunteer infrastructure providing leadership for communications, trail tending, park management, and fundraising committees.
