Tour the Growing Schuylkill River Trail


If you missed the first walk in February (attended by over 100 people), the Complete the Schuylkill River Trail Coalition is holding a second walk from Bartram’s Garden to Dupont Crescent on Saturday, June 19th.

Meet us at the Bartram’s Garden parking lot at 9:30am. We will walk through the Bartram’s property to 51st Street, over to Gray’s Ferry Ave, and over the Gray’s Ferry Bridge to see the newly constructed Dupont Crescent site across the river. Refreshments will be provided. The walk will end at the Philadelphia Trolley Works, who will kindly “bus” everyone back to Bartram’s Garden after light refreshments. Approximate length of walk: 2 miles. Please RSVP for this event.

Last night the Lower Merion Township Commissioners on the Park and Recreation Committee voted 13-0 to recommend to the full Board that the Planning Department move forward on developing the Cynwyd Heritage Trail for $2.4 million.

Congratulations to Chris Leswing, the Lower Merion Parks & Rec team, the Friends of Cynwyd Trail, and to Sarah Stuart and the Bicycle Coalition for tying this to the growing Schuylkill River Trail network.

Still not up to speed on this project? There are some great maps at the Cynwyd Trail website. Check it out!
