Riverfront North Partnership is excited to announce an upcoming redesign of the Tacony Boat Launch, made possible with support totaling $232,000 from the Pennsylvania Coastal Zone Management and Commonwealth Finance Authority programs.
The Tacony Boat Launch (5100 Princeton Ave) is an underutilized riverfront park that will be designed with the community as a trailhead for pedestrians, bicyclists, and non-motorized boats. The park will connect to Lardner’s Point Park via the K&T Trail extension, a new segment slotted to break ground in 2020. To its north, the park will be an anchor for the planned Tacony-Holmesburg trail, linking to regional trails at Pennypack on the Delaware. The RFP for this project will be released in early 2020.
