The Great Outdoors

Eighty miles of trails and 2,880 acres of open space are located within a five-mile radius of downtown Norristown.

At the Norristown Transportation Center (NTC), transit and the wildly popular Schuylkill River Trail come together. DVRPC data estimates the average daily bicycle usage of the trail at more than 700 (counts include both directions). The new Chester Valley multi-use trail will meet the Schuylkill River Trail close to the NTC attracting additional riders from throughout adjacent Chester County. The revitalization of Manayunk and Conshohocken to the east has proven that walkable riverfront communities with trail and open space access are hot investment opportunities in the Philadelphia metro. Norristown is next.
