Cobbs Creek Community Environmental Center
The Center is closed, but you can still access the unpaved trails along the creek and the 4+ mile paved Cobbs Creek Trail
Cobb's Creek Community Environmental Center is located in 850-acre Cobb's Creek Park in West Philadelphia. It's the largest environmental center in Philadelphia, and features a lab, classroom, exhibit and meeting room, bird feeders, and gardens. The center is located along the Cobb's Creek Trail. Visitors can learn about and experience a variety of habitats including aquatic life, meadows, and wetlands. Follow the trail south through forests and over bridges in and out of Delaware County for a great escape from the city. The center is very accesible from SEPTA bus routes and the Market-Frankford Line. For more info about the Cobb's Creek Trail click here.
Bike parking is available at the center.
Trails: 3.7 mi of paved surface and 2 mi of natural surface.
While you’re visiting look out for the willow bench installation, part of Lenapehocking Watershed Art Project.
