The King of Prussia District has set forth with its Moore Road Multimodal Trail Study, according to a Chris Basler, director of Capital Projects and Planning for the organization.

The study will seek to determine if First Avenue Linear Park — the recreation, dining, and lifestyle space between N. Gulph Road to the south and Allendale Road to the north — can be further extended to connect with the Schuylkill River Trail.

Doing so would connect the commercial and residential properties First Ave. traverses with Valley Forge National Historical Park. Further, it will be a linkage to the region’s Circuit Trails, a network of hundreds of miles of multiuse pathways.

Design of the extension is now being devised in a collaboration between Simone Collins Landscape Architecture, Norristown, and Traffic Planning and Design, Pottstown.

The designs will illustrate ways to connect the existing mix of properties — including multifamily developments, commercial office properties, restaurants, hotel, service retail, entertainment venues and the recently accredited Silas T. Burgess Arboretum — with exciting future developments like Topgolf, Amazon, and the Mancill Mill Road Townhomes.

The consultant team is reaching out to property owners to gather input on how this initial plan can be enhanced.

Property owners seeking to receive updates can contact Chris Basler by email.
