Garnet Valley Greenways

Garnet Valley Greenway Open House Tonight (March 10th) Postponed!!

The Township’s Emergency Management Team along with Council have determined it is both prudent and socially responsible to POSTPONE our Garnet Valley Greenway Open House as a result of the evolving issue with the COVID-19 virus.  At this time, we are evaluating all special events/meetings planned that could attract large groups of residents gathering at this time.   As we all know, the impact of the virus is rapidly changing, and we feel that it is improper to host an event where we have the potential to place a single resident at risk.  We believe our decision reflects our role in leadership and setting an example.

Please continue to check our website, and to like us on social media to keep abreast of important Township communications.  Additionally, be sure you are signed up on our CodeRED system on our website for emergency communication information

Thank you for your understanding and we will continue to communicate on a rescheduled date.

Concord Township & Chester Heights Borough
Octoraro Greenway Feasibility Study
December 2016


A primary recommendation of the Concord Township Greenways and Open Space Network Plan (see below) was to investigate the feasibility of a trail along the former Octoraro Railroad. Concord Township and Chester Heights Borough have collaborated to prepare this feasibility study for the Octoraro Greenway.


Concord Township's
Greenways and Open Space Network Plan
December 2015


This updated plan was edited slightly in response to feedback received from the public. In short, diagrams were revised to add connections west of Route 202 and north of Route 1 and the narrative was revised (page 42) to reflect the same.

This updated plan was adopted at the Board of Supervisors
public meeting on February 2, 2016.
