Watering Manayunk: Some Parks, a Canal, a Lock, and a Tank

May 20, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

This special park tour has two parts. In the first hour, you’ll visit the new Venice Island Recreation Center with its green-roofed stormwater tank, river-themed art, and beautiful spray park. See the intact Lock 69 at the outlet of the Manayunk Canal, which was built in 1819 when Manayunk was barely a settlement, and the towpath linear park. In the second hour you’ll walk uphill to the new Cynwyd Trail, just opened in 2015 atop the Manayunk Railroad Bridge, for a spectacular view of the canal and river.
