  • Rating: NR
The park is one of 49 National Heritage Areas, and one of 12 in Pennsylvania. It showcases how the river has been a center for three revolutions: the American, the Industrial and the Environmental. Here, we learn of plans to complete the Schuylkill River Trail between Philadelphia and Pottsville, as well as a water trail in the river itself.
