Support the Tookany Creek Circuit Trail

As a lifelong Cheltenham resident, I have frequently found myself going out of the township to seek out nature trails. Though there are some short trails within Cheltenham, I have always desired a more extensive network of trails in my neighborhood. When I saw that there was an ongoing feasibility study for a circuit trail through Cheltenham, I was ecstatic and immediately wanted to get involved in this effort. This 3.4-mile trail down the heart of the Tookany Creek could add another beautiful natural landmark to our community. I recognized that this trail could raise the health of our communities, our overall environmental consciousness, and provide a safe, emission-free transit option for people within our district.

Under the sponsorship of the Tookany-Tacony Frankford Watershed Partnership and the Pennsylvania Environmental Council, Campbell Thomas & Co. (a local architecture firm) is working on a study to identify possible upgrades to the existing trail and construction of new a trail alongside the Tookany Creek.
