Pennsauken Green was established by Pennsauken residents who recognize the need and benefits of open space in urbanized areas such as Pennsauken Township.  In Pennsauken, a greenway will:

  • Bring our river and streams into the public realm.
  • Improve quality of life
  • Provide wildlife habitats
  • Protect the existing crucial habitats of Petty's Island and Fish House Cove
  • Improve and stabilize property values
  • Protect water quality and prevent flooding.
  • Provide educational opportunities to our schoolchildren
  • Connect people to the history of our waterfront

 

Our neighbor to the south, the city of Camden has begun to implement their greenway plan. Across our northern border exists the Palmyra Cove Nature Park, a 350-acre sanctuary. A greenway in Pennsauken will unify these considerable open space projects producing a significant system of green infrastructure.
