Pennypack Park

Pennypack Pth, Philadelphia, PA 19136, USA

This park’s recreational trail along the riverbank connects several baseball and soccer fields with opportunities for walking, bicycling, and fishing. Picnic areas, a pier, a gazebo, and a pavilion overlook a small but beautiful tidal wetland preserve that leads to the mouth of the Pennypack Creek. A pair of bald eagles nests in this area. Beginning with a bridge spanning the creek, the Baxter Trail is to be constructed in the fall of 2014/2015. The 2 mile trail will link Pennypack on the Delaware to Pleasant Hill Park to the Baxter Trail.
