We asked future users of the Viaduct park “What activities do you think you will do most frequently when visiting the improved Viaduct?” Responses were definitive … and by far most respondents said they would “Relax and enjoy the open the space.” “Eat a meal or snack was a distant second.” “Bike” or “exercise” lagged much further behind. Provided with multiple options, respondents chose keep it simple. “It would be wonderful to be hit by a field of green and flowers; nothing is more immediate and satisfying, especially in the city.” All this is quite logical, notes landscape architect Bryan Hanes, for a neighborhood far from William Penn’s four squares, from Fairmount Park, and the rivers.
