58th Street Greenway Description

Although just 1.4 miles long, the 58th Street Greenway is an important connector in the southwestern Philadelphia neighborhood of Kingsessing. Although most of the greenway is off-road trail, note that short sections are shared with cars, but the route is clearly indicated with markers on the road.

On its eastern end, the trail provides access to the historical 46-acre Bartram's Garden on the west bank of the Schuylkill River. Founded in 1728, it is the oldest botanic garden in the country.

On its western end, the trail connects to the Cobbs Creek Trail, a paved pathway winding along a tree-lined creek in the borough of Lansdowne. Both trails are part of The Circuit network, a vast system of interconnected trails in the Philadelphia region. The trail also ties into an even larger effort, the developing East Coast Greenway which links trails from Florida to Maine.
