The 2017 Trail Summit is On-Line!

The 2017 Philadelphia Western Suburbs Trail Summit on February 25 was well attended and highly informative. Held at the Community Center building at Haverford Reserve, this 5th annual summit presented a packed schedule of regional overviews and detailed local reports from a good number of municipalities in Delaware County, plus Lower Merion. It was hosted by Haverford Township's Department of Parks and Recreation, working together with the Friends of Haverford Trails.
