Haverford Reserve CREC Building

At the 2016 Trail Summit at the Community Recreation and Environmental Center (9000 Parkview Drive, Haverford, PA 19041), presenters and attendees will discuss opportunities in Haverford and the potential for linkages throughout the region. Hear about plans in Radnor, Lower Merion, Newtown and Upper Darby for trails that will link the region. Anyone interested in walking and biking is welcome to attend. The summit is hosted annually by the Haverford Township Parks and Recreation Department, and conducted by the Haverford Walks and Bikes Committee and Friends of Haverford Trails. We will review progress, identify opportunities to improve walking and biking in Haverford and the region, and prioritize and help plan continuing trail connections in our community. You can bring your wish list, adopt a trail, and help us plan for more trails. We hope to see you there!
