Fairmount Park – Delaware River Trail

To encourage engagement and recreational use of the rapidly developing series of trails and parks along the North Delaware Riverfront, Philadelphia Parks and Recreation and the Delaware Riverfront Development Corporation engaged CG to develop a comprehensive signage, wayfinding and interpretive program.

As a part of the system, CG coordinated the research, writing and design of a series of interpretive stations, species markers and maps to highlight the forgotten industrial, residential and natural history of six of Philadelphia’s oldest riverwards.

Notable: These new elements build on and become part of the Fairmount Park Signage and Wayfinding Guidelines designed by CG. This system is being deployed in Philadelphia’s 9,200-acre, 63-park system, making it the largest public park sign program in the country.
