The Tacony Creek Trail offers a winding paved path along its namesake creek from Juniata Park to the East Oak Lane, Olney, and Lawncrest 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.
Future plans call for connecting the trail to the Frankford Creek Greenway and both are part of The Circuit Trails, a vast network of multi-use trails throughout Greater Philadelphia.
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.
