Foundation Launches Pottstown Outdoor Activity Site

POTTSTOWN PA – More than 160 outdoor activity sites – providing everything from a calming walk to take in Mother Nature’s beauty, to paved and patrolled biking trails, to historic sites and museums – all are located and described on “Pottstown Area Outdoors,” here, with an expansive database of online pages that is part of the Pottstown Area Health & Wellness Foundation website.

The foundation announced the launch of the new pages in an e-mail distributed Friday (Jan. 15, 2021).

It covers a wide area, within a 50-mile radius of Pottstown, and is intended to be “a wealth of resources and maps” that “offer the motivation and information for residents to make the most of all the Tri-County area has to offer.” For most referenced locations, the database supplies a physical address, an embedded Google Map for directions, a description of facility features, and contact information.

It also links to articles written by foundation staffers and others that suggest ways to make outdoor treks more enjoyable and healthier.

The foundation promises “to build out the site with photos, information, and resources submitted by members of our community at It plans to promote the section incoming weeks, and hopes users will “make use of the site, share with those in your own networks, and find new destinations to make memories with friends and family.”
