The East Coast Greenway (ECG) from Flower Street, Chester City to Darby Creek, Ridley Township is a 4.44-mile trail project through an urban area of Delaware County. The study area is characterized by a mix of heavy industries, rail lines, highway transportation corridors, historic resources and the Delaware River. Development of the ECG trail is an important part of this area’s revitalization efforts.

The East Coast Greenway is a developing trail system, spanning nearly 3,000 miles as it winds its way between Canada and Key West, linking all the major cities of the eastern seaboard. Over 25 percent of the route is already on safe, traffic-free paths.
