Lehigh Canal Park Fund
The Lehigh Canal Park Fund supports projects related to the conservation of the Lehigh Canal Park and Trail in Carbon County, as well as education and outdoor recreation activities in the park.
If you live in or have ever visited Carbon County, chances are good that you have taken a hike or ridden a bike on some part of the XX mile-long trail located along the Lehigh Canal. The Lehigh Canal Park consists of that trail as well as XX acres of park along the Lehigh River Canal.
Many people don’t realize that the park is maintained by the Lehigh Canal Recreation Commission, which is a government entity consisting of one representative from each of the following seven municipalities: Bowmanstown, East Penn, Franklin, Jim Thorpe, Lehighton, Mahoning, and Parryville. This fund and your donations will support their efforts to maintain the trail and promote all activities and education related to it.
