Tacony Creek Trail Description

The Tacony Creek Trail is a winding paved path along its namesake creek in the Juniata Park and East Oak Lane neighborhoods of Northeast Philadelphia. Situated entirely within scenic Tacony Creek Park, the trail offers ample opportunities for birdwatching, learning about the local watershed or simply taking a break from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Near the trail's southern end, the park's Ferko Playground offers a large and popular play space for children, while adjacent ballfields welcome young local athletes.

The trail is part of The Circuit Trails, a vast network of connecting multi-use trails through Greater Philadelphia.

Parking and Trail Access

There are no official parking areas for the Tacony Creek Trail, but parking may be available on adjacent local streets. Be sure to obey any posted parking restrictions. Access to the trail is available at Cheltenham Avenue, Adams Avenue, Rising Sun Avenue, Tabor Avenue, Bingham Street, Rorer Street, Whitaker Avenue, Fishers Lane and Ramona Avenue.
