Philadelphia's newest greenway—Gray's Ferry Crescent, stretching from 34th Street to Wharton Street along the eastern bank of the Schulykill River—was dedicated earlier this week. Check it out this weekend: There is a 3,700-foot long bicycle and pedestrian trail, plus lawn areas for recreation and relaxing by the river. Situated on a former brownfield, the Gray's Ferry Crescent is part of a larger greenway plan to connect Center City with Bartram's Garden along the Schuylkill.
