The videos capture a special moment in time when a group of friends, Dani Conkling, Nathan Dixon, Jake Kehs, Stephen Horcha and Raul Romero, came together to create a makeshift playground on an overgrown railroad in Philadelphia. The wildness of the space inspired Nathan to install the first swing located behind the 915 Spring Arts studio building. He secretly scaled the trestle one night and surprised the group with the swing. This led to the making of a tire swing, hand-picked from an illegal dumping site near the PHL airport, and a see-saw made from an old police barricade. 
Since then, the Rail Park was developed close by and allows easy access to the old elevated railroad known as the Reading Viaduct.
