The Chestnut Hill Road Trailhead at North Coventry Township's Coventry Woods has recently undergone a major improvement project thanks to a $15,000 grant from the Pottstown Area Health & Wellness Foundation. In the past, heavy rains caused severe erosion at the Chestnut Hill Road access that resulted in closures. The access drive and parking area were paved to ensure future weather events will not cause further damage or closures. An existing pavilion at the trailhead has also been restored. These improvements will allow area residents to have easy access to the park and its facilities for years to come.
The 700-acre township-owned park contains a total of about 9 miles of hiking trails which can be accessed via the park's six access and parking areas. Coventry Woods acts not only as a recreation area, but also as a community hub for events and activities, including the annual Coventry Woods Bonfire, coming up on November 4th at the Fernbrook Access.
