Cynwyd Trail Opening Sunday 10/23

For a public works project, the Cynwyd Trail was planned, designed and built in warp speed. Driven by Lower Merion Township's Planner Chris Leswing and Friends of the Cynwyd Trail, this new trail is being thrown a big party on Sunday, October 23rd from 1-4pm. Ride your bike to 154 E. Levering Mill Road, Bala Cynwyd, PA (map)

The Cynwyd Heritage Trail runs from the Cynwyd rail station northeast between West Laurel Cemetery and West minster Cemetery, terminating where Belmont Avenue meets Rock Hill Rd. The Manayunk Bridge extension will eventually connect this trail to the Schuylkill River Trail.

In addition to a Ribbon Cutting event, Philadelphia radio host Dan Reed will provide a “Trail Mix” of music. There will be pumpkins, scavenger hunts, face painting, giveaways, food and excitement for the entire community. The Main Line Art Center’s new Art Mobile will be on hand to provide arts and crafts fun for the younger set, and of course, the Friends of the Cynwyd Trail will play a prominent role, providing walking tours (and signing up new members!)
