Wandering the Valley Green park around the wide apart of the Wissahickon by the Valley Green Inn is always pleasant. There are bench to sit and watch the water fowl or to run and bike.

Easy walking on well laid out trails in a scenic wooded area. Highly recommended year round hiking with a nice canopy of trees

Popular walking and biking trail without leaving the city. Wooded and splendid views of trees, plants, water, hills, bridges, old ruins and former park springs. Great for families. Parking on sight. Many people assure complete safety.
