Berwick's New Riverfront Trail

Newsletter Feature - April 2014

Each month learn about a local project being funded through the Susquehanna Greenway Mini-Grant Program that is helping to build the Greenway and connect people to the Susquehanna River. The program is funded in part by the PA Dept of Conservation and Natural Resources.

With the warming weather Berwick’s Public Works Department has come one step closer to completing a one-mile trail and other park improvements that provide Test Track Park visitors with a safe and attractive venue for enjoying the Susquehanna River, thanks in part to funding support from a Susquehanna Greenway Mini-Grant and funding through the PA DCNR.

 

Berwick was awarded a grant to build the trail, and install mile markers, benches, tables and informational kiosks. The kiosks and mile markers were designed and constructed by the Public Works Department. The tables and benches are wheelchair accessible so that people of all abilities can enjoy the riverfront and stunning views. The city has plans to extend the trail once additional funding is identified and secured.

 

Other recently added park amenities include an ADA accessible fishing area, boat launch, pavilions and a playground. Consider a visit to Test Track Park to enjoy the many new recreational opportunities!
