Rails to Trails Workshop Saturday in Southampton

Learn about the the Penn-Tammany Greenway on Saturday from 1 to 3 p.m. at Redemption Episcopal Church in Upper Southampton.

We invite you to join us in the exciting efforts now underway to establish a rail trail and preserved greenway along the inactive Fox Chase-Newtown Line. This trail will not only benefit your family, friends and neighbors, but also provide an economic boost to the local communities. As a local neighbor, your support is critical to the success of this effort and all those who would benefit from its fruition. Many other rail trails in our area already provide world-class recreational opportunities for local residents and an inspiring experience for tourists. With your help we can bring all the benefits of rail trails to our community.

Imagine a trail and preserved greenway that not only connects the communities from Abington in Montgomery County to Newtown in Bucks County, but also connects to other proposed trails like the Neshaminy Creek Trail and the Churchville/Playwicki Trail.

 The Penn-Tammany Greenway will connect hundreds of residents to town centers, water resources, parks, open spaces, and historic sites while also linking them to the significant resources of neighboring communities. The trail will provide routes for our children to walk to school safely. It will provide inviting places for families to walk, bike, and hike to improve their health. It will also strengthen local and regional economies through increased property values, bolstered tourism, and new business investment drawn to our quality communities.

The workshop is scheduled for Saturday, May 17 from 1 to 3 PM at Redemption Episcopal Church, 1101 2nd Street Pike, Southampton (next to Tamanend Park). Light refreshments will be served.

Our goal is to provide valuable information to those interested. Professionals in rail trail development will also be present to answer any questions you may have and discuss the many tangible benefits you may receive through a rail trail. Ultimately, it is your sense of community spirit that matters most! We hope you will become a local partner in one of the most important quality of life improvements for our area.

Please RSVP by May 16 by calling: 267-291-4413.
