Cynwyd Heritage Trail

Designed by Studio/ Bryan Hanes, Lower Merion Township is working on a 60-acre park with a 2 mile trail that will connect one of Philadelphia's oldest suburbs with a thriving art and entertainment district across the river in Manayunk via the Manayunk Bridge.  The design of the Cynwyd Heritage Trail and Park will capitalize on the unique features of the former industrial site as well as the nature of the surrounding communities.

The rail corridor, an abandoned piece of infrastructure which once connected people to goods and services, has been cut off from public use for nearly 100 years.  The Township and designers envision repurposing the corridor as a linear park, creating physical and social connections, linking wildlife and nature corridors, transporting people and creating strong communities.
