Center City Philadelphia is thriving with office, hotel and residential developments, art and cultural venues, restaurants and cafés, historic and contemporary architecture, clean and well-lit sidewalks, and inviting public squares and parks. CCDF seeks to add to these extraordinary amenities a significant permanent public art experience at Dilworth Park and more 

multi-generational recreational activities at Sister Cities Park, as well as transform the former Reading Railroad Viaduct into the city’s newest elevated green space, the Rail Park. Help make these and many other projects a reality. Join us by making a donation and leave a legacy of excellence for generations to come. 

So much accomplished...so much more to do!
