We are a grassroots organization comprised of residents in Bucks and Montgomery Counties who are interested in utilizing SEPTA's Fox Chase - Newtown line as a multi-use recreational trail. We believe that a trail will provide year-round recreational opportunities such as: biking, jogging, hiking, birding, nature study, and cross country skiing. We also believe there is an opportunity, unique to many rails to trails projects, to provide an interconnected trail network, which will provide a connection to parks, shopping districts, restaurants, schools, churches, neighborhoods, local bus routes, and places of employment. By using a trail as a form of active transportation, we take cars off the road and effectively help to reduce emissions.
To advance the utilization of Septa's Fox Chase - Newtown line as a recreational trail in order to benefit our local health, economy, community, and environment.
The Penn-Tammany Greenway will provide a first-rate recreational experience for our local community and tourists. It will be a premier, multi-use, non-motorized trail that becomes a destination in Southeastern Pennsylvania. The greenway will highlight our natural, cultural, and railroad heritage while providing a fun, safe, healthy connector between neighboring communities and parks.
