The Schuylkill River Development Corporation (SRDC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the revitalization of the tidal Schuylkill River in Philadelphia. With a focus on sustainable development, SRDC aims to enhance the recreational and economic potential of the riverfront, making it a vibrant and accessible destination for the community.
One of SRDC's notable projects is Bartram's Mile, a scenic trail and greenway that stretches along the west bank of the Schuylkill River, through Bartram's Garden. Completed in April 2017, this segment of the Schuylkill Banks offers a beautiful natural setting for activities such as walking, jogging, and biking. Along the trail, visitors can discover the Newkirk Monument, which serves as a historical interpretation of the industrial history of the river.
As a connector to the Grays Ferry Crescent through the Schuylkill Crossing, Bartram's Mile is just one part of SRDC's larger vision to create a continuous greenway along the riverfront. By supporting SRDC through donations or volunteering, you can contribute to the ongoing efforts to revitalize the tidal Schuylkill River and create a sustainable and inclusive environment for all to enjoy.

Built on the site of one of the many petroleum terminals that once dotted the Schuylkill River, the Bartram's Mile section of the Schuylkill River Trail will meet the Grays Ferry Ped/Bike swing bridge and link the Grays Ferry Crescent and Christian to Crescent sections of the SRT to the National Historic Landmark Bartram's Garden. As of 2022, the northern terminus is the Newkirk Monument but heading south the trail runs along Botanic Ave. to 51st St. and enters Bartram's Garden's meadow further continuing to a public plaza at 56th St. Beyond the SRT continues to 62nd St. on its way to the Passyunk Crescent, currently in planning. Trail is accessible via 51st St.
