Several other large parks are also very close by. Wissinoming
Park and the
surrounding cemeteries are just a few blocks west of Tacony and combine to provide a substantial
amount of green space in close proximity to several neighborhoods.
Pennypack Creek Park and
trail, which extends into
Montgomery County and terminates at the magnificent Pennypack on the Delaware
park, is just over one mile east of the
neighborhood. Its trail can be accessed through several area trailheads, and the park is enjoyed
by walkers, bikers, and horseback riders alike. It features remnants of historic mill structures
along some parts of the creek, as well as a concert pavilion, playgrounds, and picnic areas.
Pennypack on the Delaware is home to ball fields, picnic pavilions, and a completed stretch of
the East Coast Greenway (ECG)
trail, which runs
along the Delaware River.
Tacony’s Lardners Point Park, at the foot of the
Tacony-Palmyra Bridge, is also home to a completed stretch of the ECG. Additional sections of
the ECG trail system are funded and/or planned to run along the Delaware River from New Jersey
down to Spring Garden Avenue, which will provide yet another terrific connection between Tacony
and the surrounding neighborhoods.
