PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) -- A park across the street from 30th Street Station is in the final stage of construction and will soon open to the public.  

When the park opens in May, it will be the first completed project of Schuylkill Yards, a $3.5 billion development project on land owned by Drexel University.

Fourteen acres between 30th Street Station and the universities to the west, Drexel and Penn, will be developed over the next 15 to 20 years.

More than six acres of the 14 acres is reserved for public space.
