Phipps Run Schenley Park

IMPROVING ECOLOGICAL HEALTH the once unwalkable corridor has been converted into a functional stream bed and trail for visitors to walk and admire.


At Phipps Run in Schenley Park, a muddy corridor was reconstructed as a new stream bed and trail in 2004. The re-establishment of the stream marked the essential first step in renewing the ecological health of the entire area.
