The Land Conservancy for Southern Chester County (TLC) works in collaboration with Kennett Trails Alliance to complete the 12-mile planned loop trail, the Kennett Greenway – A Walkable Communities Project.
Once completed, this ambitious trail project will connect TLC conserved lands with other trail networks, scenic roadways, and access points to and from the Kennett borough. The trail currently begins at the Pennock Ball Fields trail loop traveling south along the west branch of the Red Clay Creek crossing the Hillendale Road Bridge down to Chandler Mill Road. There is a small parking area and kiosk on South Street. The next trail phase will connect the trail northward into the Borough through Magnolia Place.
Once completed, the Kennett Greenway will help alleviate our dependance on vehicles, allow children the freedom to walk or ride their bikes to school and local ball fields, and provide runners, equestrians, and walkers a more extensive trails system to navigate. Since a good portion of the trails will be through TLC preserved lands, the public will also have more opportunities to enjoy the natural beauty of the lands that TLC has worked so diligently to preserve.
