Fairmount Park Commission OKs acquisition of Schuylkill land parcels
By Stephan Salisbury
Inquirer Culture Writer

In virtually its last act after 142 years in existence, the Fairmount Park Commission yesterday approved the acquisition of 12 acres - two parcels that will be carved from a bank of the Schuylkill south of Center City.

The prospective parkland is composed of two unpromising slivers at the moment, but will form the next sections of the Schuylkill River Trail, the green ribbon running for miles along the river from Montgomery County, down through the city to Locust Street, and eventually to the Delaware River.
