Background and Policy Context

The Strawberry Mansion neighborhood of North Philadelpha is located near Fairmount Park. In April 2003, the Fairmount Park Commission and the Fairmount Park Conservancy completed Phase I of a project on 1.3 miles of the 3.8-mile Boxers' Trail in Fairmount (East) Park. The Boxers Trail, also known as the Cliffs Trail, was a narrow, unpaved path along a wooded hilltop. The Rapid HIA was conducted to evaluate the potential effectiveness of designed intervention to revitalize a section of Fairmount Park, Boxers Trail.
