And thanks to the wild success of these exciting projects, other cities around the world are looking at innovative and environmentally friendly ways of reinventing the disused railways of their industrial past. Cleveland’s proposed Red Line Park is one of them.

Urban Ghosts are covering the rails to park beat this week. We like where these abandoned railroads are headed.
Linear urban parks utilising abandoned railway infrastructure are becoming increasingly popular, from Paris’ Promenade Plantée to New York’s High Line and proposed Lowline and QueensWay. Another exciting project proposes to transform a section of the former Bloomingdale Line, originally built in 1873 by the Chicago and Pacific Railroad Company, into a 2.7-mile elevated park called the Bloomingdale Trail.
