Walkable Communities Planning in Williamsport

Improving Connectivity

SGP’s Trails program helps communities and partners envision, build, and sustain trail segments within the Susquehanna Greenway that transform greenway corridors into vibrant public spaces that inspire active living.

By connecting communities and linking residents and visitors to the resources of the Susquehanna River with trails and greenways, we foster a positive association with the river, helping to build a greater sense of community, and providing healthy living opportunities. SGP provides technical assistance and works collaboratively with our partners to:

  • Link commuities within the Susquehanna Greenway via greenways and trails 
  • Link riverfront parks to downtown businesses and residential areas to provide public access to the river and water trail
  • Link local trail systems to other regional trail systems 
  • Link wildlife habitat corridors especially along riparian corridors
  • Improve river access
  • Preserve, enhance, and interpret scenic, historic, geologic, natural and cultural heritage assets and connect users to their enduring stories through signage and promotion
