A Unique Project with Transformative Potential
Friends of the Wilmington Rail Trail plan to reactivate the unused railroad space in the northside community of downtown to connect arts and cultural assets using an urban trail for walking and biking that combines public art, wayfinding and pedestrian amenities. This new greenway will service the needs and capture the character of the surrounding district. The project will benefit stakeholders who live and work in the district, the Greater Wilmington community as a whole, and area visitors alike, while providing sustainable economic development to the area. The project would align with the City's already established Comprehensive Greenway Plan and would be implemented with the provision for reintroduction of rail service in the future.
