We just got word from Philadelphia Parks and Recreation that the Manayunk Towpath, which was flooded, destroyed, and closed after the remnants of Hurricane Ida massacred the City, is reopening on Friday, October 15th. By Saturday, October 16th, trail users should have full access to all entrances to the path in Philadelphia.

This is great news, especially as we live through a particularly warm False Fall in the Delaware Valley, ripe for bicycling and walking on the Region’s trails.

By Saturday, the following entrances are expected to be open:

  • Lock Street
  • Rector Street
  • Cotton Street
  • Carson Street
  • Green Lane
  • Leverington Street
  • Fountain Street
  • Nixon Street/Shawmont Avenue

Big thanks to Philadelphia Parks and Recreation, the Philadelphia Streets Department, and the Philadelphia Office of Transportation, Infrastructure, and Sustainability for making this happen.
