Chestnut Street Trail

Chestnut Trail Path

Connects School Road Park to Downtown Hatfield Borough

With connections to business, employment and recreation, this 1.5-mile multi-purpose trail is for those on foot or non-motorized wheels traveling between School Road Park and Hatfield Borough.

From the Hatfield Community Park and going north, pedestrians and bicyclists follow a paved trail to Bronze Drive in the Line Lexington Industrial Park. There, the trail becomes "share the road" along Bronze Drive and North Penn Road. The entrance into the Babcock and Wilcox Company parking lot at Sterling Drive is part of the trail, and leads people to the rear entrance of School Road Park.

Going south, the trail runs from where the Hatfield Community Park's section of Chestnut Street ends at the Dog Park, through woodland, to Maple Avenue. There, it becomes "share the road" along Maple Avenue to Chestnut Street, and turns onto Chestnut Street. At the West Branch Neshaminy Creek, a bridge for "pedestrian/non-motorized wheels only" takes people into the center of Hatfield Borough, with its core commercial district and residential streets lined with sidewalks. Here, the Chestnut Street Trail links to a completed section of the future 25-mile Liberty Bell Trail that is planned to connect East Norriton in Montgomery County to Quakertown in Bucks County.
