Located in Smedley Park, today we are taking a look at the Paper Mill Rd Trolley Stop.
Paper Mill Rd is a local stop on the SEPTA Route 101 Trolley line running from the 69th Street Terminal out to State Street in Media. It has frequent service 7 days a week and multiple stops throughout its line. The Paper Mill Rd stop is located in Smedley Park adjacent to the I476/ Blue Route Corridor. The stop is just one block north of Baltimore Pike at this point and Paper Mill Rd is the first intersection east of the Blue Route.
Smedley Park is a Delaware County Park that was named after the founder of the County's Parks & Recreation Board: Samuel L Smedley. The park contains approximately 120 acres of land and is located just north of Baltimore Pike and runs under the Blue Route. The park contains various picnic facilities, athletic fields, and hiking paths. It is also the home of the Penn State's Cooperative Extension of Delaware County. The video will provide a better feel for the area:
This is a local stop with no assigned commuter parking. It is within walking distance of much of the park, but commuters would probably be better served through one of the adjacent stations that have assigned parking. It is very convenient for park events and is within easy walking distance of the Cooperative Extension Office.
As always, if you have any questions or are thinking of a move, feel free to contact me anytime.
