Is it true that Schuylkill Township has no public parks, playgrounds or even tennis courts at all? And virtually no sidewalks along roadways, except within a few McMansion developments? No way for students to walk safely on sidewalks from Schuylkill Elementary to the YMCA property, or even from the Township building to the Y? No sidewalks along Rt. 23, Rt. 29, White Horse Rd. or Pothouse Rd?

Although it is part of VF Park, the River Trail off Pawlings is a family favorite.

My favorite park is CHARLESTOWN PARK, a subregional park that has more than 2000 children in midget football, basketball, field hockey, lacrosse, cheerleading and soccer. It is located at the corners where Charlestown, East Pikeland and Phoenixville intersect. The walking trails are beautiful and always in use. The trees are awesome.

Hey Jay, I'm not sure about the parks etc but as for the sidewalks you are right on. I was out running the other day and it's somewhat like taking your life in your own hands. I have to walk my son to his bus stop down the side of the road. It doesn't help that people feel the need to test their cars top end speed on local roads but that's another matter. I'd happily give up 10 feet of my front yard for sidewalks. Who do we need to talk to about this???
