Friends of the Cynwyd Heritage Trail
The Friends of the Cynwyd Heritage Trail was founded in 2008 by a group of dedicated volunteers committed to supporting the construction of the Trail. Currently, the Friends focus on supporting the volunteer efforts in beautifying the park. In the future, the group hopes to support the recreational and educational resources of the park and provide for trail amenities.

Friends Receive the Green Machine Award from PHS
The Friends received a Green Machine Award from the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. The Green Machine team consists of technical experts in gardening who will work with the Friends to plan and care for existing planting beds and planters. Through the Community Integrated Design Process, PHS provides horticultural assistance and training to better sustain and manage the plantings in area parks. Working collaboratively with neighborhood volunteers and Lower Merion Township, the Green Machine program’s goal is to revitalize our gardens, educate participants about sustainable greening, and help make parks more beautiful.
The next workshop will be:
