Botanical Heritage of the Lower Schuylkill

The Botanic Trail
a 2.5-mile pedestrian and biking greenway to be created along the lower Schuylkill River from 30th St. Station to Historic Bartram's Garden. It will become part of the 110-mile Schuylkill River Trail, which extends from Philadelphia to Pottsville. The Botanic Trail Project is headquartered at Historic Bartram's Garden and is supported by the William Penn Foundation as part of its Schuylkill River Initiative.
