Save the Date: New Trail Opening!

Representatives from the City of Philadelphia, elected officials, and other special guests with gather with Riverfront North Partnership, and community members to cut the ribbon and celebrate the grand opening of a new trail segment along the Delaware River in Northeast Philadelphia on August 11th at 10am.

This trail segment is the newest addition to the Riverfront North’s planned 11-mile linear network of trails and parks and an extension of the existing Kensington & Tacony Trail. This Northeast Philadelphia trail section will eventually connect with the Delaware River Trail in central and south Philadelphia.  Starting on August 11th, residents can enjoy an uninterrupted two-mile section of riverfront trail in Tacony and connections to the only public boat launches on the Delaware River in Philadelphia. This trail also serves as an important link in the Circuit Trails, the region’s multi-use trail network of more than 375 miles of completed trails, as well as an important segment for the East Coast Greenway, a 3,000 mile trail from Florida to Maine. Stay tuned for more information on the event!
