The 11th annual Western Suburbs Trail Summit will be held in person on Saturday, February 4, 2023 from 9am to Noon at the Community Recreation and Environmental Center (CREC) building in Andy Lewis Community Park in Haverford Reserve in Haverford Township. It will be co-sponsored by the Friends of Haverford Trails, Haverford Township’s Parks and Recreation Department and Delaware County’s Trails Alliance. The summit will once again focus on trail and on-street bicycling/pedestrian improvements and plans throughout our area. Each year we review progress, identify opportunities to improve walking and biking, and prioritize and help plan continuing trail connections in our communities.
The summit is FREE and all are encouraged to attend. An agenda will be forthcoming.
The Haverford Township Department of Parks and Recreation and the Friends of Haverford Trails began co-hosting a “Trail Summit” in 2013. Its twin goals were to highlight and discuss the trail, cycling and walking initiatives being undertaken in Haverford Township, and to inspire and promote similar initiatives in neighboring municipalities. Over the years momentum grew, and it transformed into the “Philadelphia Western Suburbs Trail Summit.” With support from Delaware County and its newly-formed Delaware County Trails Alliance, the summit grew again in 2021 to encompass all of Delaware County, PA. plus adjacent Lower Merion Township.
