Last week we told you about the new land acquisitions for the Delaware River Trail. Now there’s even more reason to be excited about the future of the waterfront, with the completion of Pier 68 park.
Work began on the park earlier this summer after being talked about since 2013. This new space on the formerly abandoned pier near the Walmart on Columbus Boulevard is now ready to be unveiled at a ceremony on October 1.
This new park space will include an improved entrance deck with seating and new finishings, new trees, a picnic area, an area for observation of the river, a fishing spot and more. You can read the full list of improvements and see more renderings of the space here.
The grand opening ceremony will be happening at the park on Thursday, October 2 at 2 p.m. You can find out more about the event here.
