Trail system expansion has become a priority in many communities. Hatfield Township extended two existing trails – Frick’s Trail and Chestnut Street Trail to connect residential communities, and  

  • Give trail access from the Borough to the Township Building/Aquatic Center

  • Provide connectivity to Township Parks

  • Provide alternative access to the Borough for Township residents to strengthen the urban core

Important project elements included a pedestrian crossing at E. Orvilla Road and Independence Way and installations of concrete sidewalk, ADA ramps and Continental crosswalks at Maple Ave. and Chestnut Street. 


Frick’s Trail 

  • 1.5 Miles

  • Trail begins at Sterling Drive and extends Southeast to a well-marked trailhead at Line Lexington Road

  • Stepping Stones creek crossings

  • Frick’s Meetinghouse and historic cemetery


Chestnut Street Trail

  • 1.5 miles

  • Links several neighborhoods in Hatfield Township to the downtown, Hatfield Borough

  • Passes Hatfield Community Park & Pool, Municipal Building and School Zone Park


McMahon was the prime consulantant working with CKS Engineers and Hatfield Public Works were responsible for oversight of the project from permitting through construction. The team also led public meetings associated with the trail projects. The trail connections were funded through the Montgomery County 2040 Implementation Grant, Penn Color and North Penn Health, Hospital and Education Authority and are part of the Greenway and Trails Master Plan. The trail improvements have been well received by local citizens.
