From biking to birding to trail hiking – plus fishing, boating, and more – the new Brandywine Creek Greenway app helps users find recreational activities in more than 100 publicly-accessible parks and preserves in Chester and Delaware counties.
With the free app, users can find the closest park or preserve to their current location or filter by the type of activity they want to do, including sport fields, picnicking, and horseback riding.
From the Harvey Run Trail in Chadds Ford to the Struble Lake Recreation Area in Honey Brook, each of the dozens of municipal parks and private, nonprofit preserves has a brief description, photo gallery, GPS-enabled directions, tips, and notes.
The app is currently available to download for both Apple and Android operating systems through the App Store and Google Play.
The Brandywine Creek Greenway is a regional planning initiative of the Brandywine Conservancy, along with 25 municipal partners in Chester and Delaware counties along both branches of the Brandywine, to create a 30-mile conservation and recreation corridor.
It stretches from the Delaware state line just south of Chadds Ford to the Pennsylvania Highlands Mega-Greenway near Honey Brook. Goals of the Greenway include protecting scenic, historic, and natural resources; educating communities about the Brandywine and its resources; and promoting recreational resources.
