Cynwyd Heritage Trail

Cynwyd Heritage Trail

Cynwyd Heritage Trail is a 2-mile long paved multi-purpose recreation trail and linear park constructed along the former SEPTA Cynwyd regional rail line in the Bala Cynwyd section of Lower Merion Township, PA. The trail begins at the Cynwyd Station, the final stop on the active rail line, and ends at Belmont Avenue near the Schuylkill River. Construction of the trail was completed in the fall of 2011 and cost $1.5 million. This rails-to-trails project has transformed acres of overgrown and underutilized land into a dynamic 21st century public park.
Pennoni provided master planning, design engineering, construction inspection, and overall project management throughout the design and construction of the trail.
