The mission of Schuylkill River Greenways NHA is to connect people and communities to the river and the trail. The boundaries of the Schuylkill River and Schuylkill River Trail cross five counties in Pennsylvania (Schuylkill, Berks, Chester, Montgomery and Philadelphia), making both a natural connector of the communities in these areas. Schuylkill River Greenways wanted to explore how the organization could assist in creating an industry of recreational hubs throughout towns along the river. The hubs would allow more people to do fun and adventurous activities even if they don’t own equipment such as a bike or kayak because rentals would be available. Schuylkill River Greenways partnered with two local outfitters to kick start such a hub system which is now being called “Go Schuylkill Greenways.” Take It Outdoors Adventures organizes group kayaking trips and more. Riverbend Cycles is a full-service bike shop and offers weekly community rides. Go Schuylkill Greenways features programming information from these two outfitters as well as recreational programs offered through Schuylkill River Greenways. The vision is that eventually there will be a system of hubs along the entire Schuylkill River where people can easily rent a bike or kayak, stop at a local eatery for a meal, and explore attractions in nearby towns.
