The Schuylkill Project has worked for several years to create a vision, projects and help bring people to the river. Take a moment to lend a hand in a simple, practical way: take this survey to let them know how you use the trail, what you love, and what you’d like changed.
Your participation is incredibly useful to ALL of the river advocates in East Falls, Manayunk, Roxborough and Shawmont as we work with the city to improve our communities’ waterfront.
