EVENTS

NOTICE: Construction on improving the trail to provide better access to the wastewater pipeline has begun between Lock 60 and the Farm Park.

The trail along the river from Lock 60 and upriver to the Farm Park has been fenced off to prevent public access to the construction site. Work is expected to be completed by the end of November.

During this time, Lock 60 and Schuylkill Canal Park will remain open to the public and we recommend you try the Neal Thorpe Trail.
