Opening Day for Trails is the national kickoff celebration for the spring trail season. Started by Rails-to-Trails Conservancy Rails-to-Trails Conservancy in 2013 and encourages people to get outside and celebrate America’s exceptional trails and trail systems. On Saturday, April 13th from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00p.m. Pennsauken will celebrate at Madison Park, 38th Street and Chestnut Avenue for a day of food, fun and festivities as we celebrate Opening Day for Trails along the future section of the Burlington-Camden Trail in Pennsauken. Mingle with Township Committeewoman Betsy McBride and elected leaders in the community. Learn about the developing trail project, including exploring renderings, its future footprint and connections to The Circuit Trails. Pennsauken is the site of a disused rail segment between Dudley Grange Park and the “Merchantville Mile,” a well-used rail-trail running through the neighboring community of Merchantville, New Jersey. If transformed into a trail, the Pennsauken segment could provide a safe off-road connection to the Ben Franklin Bridge and into Philadelphia. Jointly hosted by Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, The Circuit Trails, UrbanPromise, Camden County Government, City of Camden Government and Pennsauken.
