Green Lane Park


The Borough of Green Lane is fortunate to have the Montgomery County owned Green Lane Park within and adjacent to its borders. The County park is over 3,400 acres in size, contains three bodies of water and offers over 20 miles of trails. Green Lane Park is the result of the efforts of Montgomery County and the Philadelphia Suburban Water Company (PSWC) over 40 years ago. In 1939, Montgomery County dedicated 425 acres as Upper Perkiomen Valley Park. PSWC began planning Green Lane Reservoir in 1929 to provide a water supply for the region. Construction of the dam across Perkiomen Creek was completed in 1957. In 1959, PSWC opened Green Lane Reservoir to the public for recreation with shoreline fishing and boating. In 1983, Green Lane Reservoir Park was established and from 1983 to 1998 Green Lane Park was operated by the County as two parks—Green Lane Reservoir Park and Upper Perkiomen Valley Park. In 1998 Montgomery County merged the two parks into one, now called Green Lane Park. For more information, go to https://www.montcopa.org/871/Green-Lane-Park.

Trails


Visitors to Green Lane Park can use over 20 miles of trails, including hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and cross-country skiing. Green Lane Park also is home to the northern section of the popular Perkiomen Trail. This 20-mile multiuse trail takes visitors south, along the Perkiomen Creek through the heart of Montgomery County, where it links to the Schuylkill River Trail. The Perkiomen Trail can be accessed from within Green Lane Park and also from within the Borough, on Gravel Pike/Route 29.

The Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network (PHTN) is a developing network of over 300 miles of trails in eastern and central Pennsylvania. The PHTN connects communities across the Highlands, and passes through the Borough of Green Lane.

Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network


The Appalachian Mountain Club, working withseveral conservation and recreation organizations as well as local, state and county governments is leading an effort to develop the Pennsylvania Highlands Trail Network from the Delaware River at Riegelsville, PA west to the Maryland border.

Over 130 miles of the Highlands Trail have been established from Storm King Mountain, New York to Riegelsville, Pennsylvania.

The Mid-Atlantic Highlands of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and Connecticut form a 3.5 million acre forested greenbelt adjacent to one of the nation’s most densely populated regions including Philadelphia, New York City and Hartford.

The region stretches from northwestern Connecticut across the Hudson Valley of New York, through northern New Jersey and Southeastern Pennsylvania, ending near the Maryland border. Its forested ridges, fertile farms, pure streams and reservoirs are the rugged foothills between the Appalachian Mountains and the increasingly urbanized Piedmont and Atlantic Coastal Plain regions.

The US Congress designated this landscape “Nationally Significant” when it passed the Highlands Conservation Act in 2004.

Pennsylvania Highlands


The Pennsylvania Highlands comprises roughly 1.9 million acres and includes parts of 13 counties in eastern and central Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania Highlands hasbeen designated as a “Mega-Greenway” by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. For more information visit pahighlands.org
