About Camden Greenway
The efforts surrounding the trail began in 1993 with the Camden Greenways Working Group (now Camden Greenways Inc. - www.camdengreenways.org), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to realizing the Camden Greenway Plan and stewarding it. Currently, with a network of trails spread throughout Camden and its surrounding suburbs, the Camden GreenWay network will provide a beautiful and unique way to experience the City. The GreenWay continues to focus on connecting walking and biking trails in Camden, Philadelphia, and the South Jersey suburbs, including the Cooper River Park Trail, Schuylkill River Trail, and the East Coast Greenway.
The Camden GreenWay Trail Network will connect more than 128 miles of bicycle trails, provide mobility alternatives to the residents of South Jersey, improve public health and help the environment. Economic development along the trail corridor will increase property values and employment opportunities. As the Camden GreenWay grows, it continues to be a fantastic addition to Camden and its suburbs, and an ideal way to visit and explore the city!

The William Penn Foundation
For over the past ten years, the William Penn Foundation has been a generous supporter to Camden City and Cooper's Ferry Partnership (CFP) to help with the community engagement, planning, design, construction, and programming of the city’s greenways. These initial investments, coupled with support and leadership from Camden City and Camden County Parks, have created and/or expanded the trail network for pedestrians and bicyclists and helped to be an integral component to the neighborhood’s revitalization strategies.
