Delco offers a ‘ribbon of green’ for walkers, hikers and bikers to enjoy
Delaware County is committed to preserving open space and natural resources and providing places for outdoor recreation.
In 2018, we look forward to continuing to build the county’s walking and biking trail network.
This year, we are proud to open the Darby Creek Trail, which includes a one-mile trail along the bank of Darby Creek from the historic Swedish Cabin to the Kent Park Dog Park in Upper Darby Township. Delaware County Council has been working to create a “ribbon of green” and recreational trail along Darby Creek. One day, the trail will extend from Radnor all the way into Darby Borough, where it will connect to the newest County Park at the 33-acre Little Flower
Manor site.
In central Delaware County, the opening of the almost three-mile- long Chester Creek Trail has been a huge success with walkers, hikers and bikers. In 2018, planning continues for the extension of the trail into what will someday be a 6.5-mile trail that will extend from Middle- town Township through Chester Township along the Chester Creek.
If you haven’t tried it yet, we invite you to lace up your sneakers and start walking. You are sure to meet friendly dog-walkers, bicyclists, parents with children, joggers and senior citizens all along the way. It is an oasis of green in our bustling county!
In addition to our trails, we urge residents to take advantage of all of the special events taking place in our communities, including the free Summer Festival of music at Rose Tree Park.
We are proud to call Delco home. You don’t need to leave the county to enjoy history, theater, hiking, dining, sports, concerts, fine art, great shopping and more. It’s all right here at Destination Delco!
