River Towns Program

The Susquehanna Greenway River Towns Program is designed to help communities enhance and build meaningful relationships to the Susquehanna Greenway and connect to a larger system of support and inspiration. Our collaborative program works with communities to build leadership teams, galvanize support, navigate the planning process, and identify community-sourced programs and projects that will strengthen these connections.

Become a Susquehanna Greenway River Town

This Program provides assistance to Susquehanna Greenway communities that seek to revitalize and celebrate their River connection, based on four guiding principles:

  • Respect and work with the natural features of the Susquehanna River and the Susquehanna Greenway corridor.
  • Strengthen physical and visual connections between River Towns and the outdoor resources of Susquehanna Greenway.
  • Actively engage community members with the opportunities of the river, the Greenway, and their River Town.
  • Foster a diverse culture of outdoor recreation that encourages active, healthy living.

Benefits of a Susquehanna Greenway River Town:

  • Foster a communal sense of place and strong local identity that is attractive to multi-generational residents, businesses, and visitors.
  • Strengthen regional connections with neighboring River Towns through participation in the Susquehanna Greenway River Town Community Network.
  • Renew and expand your community’s connection to outdoor resources of the Susquehanna Greenway.
  • Improve community health through increased access to bicycle and pedestrian-friendly opportunities.
  • Maximize economic opportunities through strengthened recreational culture, outdoor connections, and resource awareness.
