New Trails in Chadds Ford

On April 29th, a new gateway into the Brandywine Creek Greenway was opened as hundreds gathered in Chadds Ford to celebrate completion of the Harvey Run Trail and Studio Trail.

In recent years, the Brandywine Conservancy has partnered with Chadds Ford Township to implement the Township’s vision for a Walkable Chadds Ford and to enhance the village as a hub along the Brandywine Creek Greenway. The River Trail, Harvey Run Trail, Potts Meadow Trail, and Studio Trail provide visitors with 5 miles of walking/hiking opportunities in the heart of historic Chadds Ford. These new trails offer pathways for residents and visitors alike to discover and appreciate the legacy of the Wyeth family of artists.

Featured This Month - Connecting Communities

Trails are an asset to our region, as they provide access to natural areas for recreation and enjoyment, and provide a means of getting from Point A to B in a healthy, alternative way. They are an essential component of a sustainable community and enhance our quality of life. Over 160 miles of new trails are envisioned within the 25 municipalities that connect through the Brandywine Creek Greenway--and which will connect to the broader regional trail network known as The Circuit.

We are pleased to announce that the Brandywine Creek Greenway app is now available to download, giving you a new way to discover and explore over 100 parks and preserves open to the public within the Greenway.

Click here to download the app. 

The app is GPS-enabled and by default will display a list of the closest places to the user’s current location or there is an option on a second tab to select a desired activity and the app will narrow the list of places accordingly. Each park/preserve entry contains a short description of the park, swipeable pictures, directions to the location (uses your default mapping program) and a tips/notes page with information such as hours of operation. 

Brandywine Conservancy staff has been compiling the information used within the app for the past year and, while we believe that the information contained within the app is accurate, please let us know should you find any errors or omissions.  We have the ability to edit the information contained within the app, which includes adding/editing new park or preserve entries and updating photographs.  

The app is available for IOS (Apple devices) and we hope to have the Android version ready for release in the next few weeks, hopefully by the next Greenway newsletter publication.  If you have any questions or comments, please contact Michael Denlinger (
