The Stroud Region Open Space and Recreation Commission (SROSRC) partnered with Stroud Township and the Stroudsburg Area School District to build a Pocono Creek Pedestrian Bridge, which spans the McMichaels Creek. The bridge connects the SHS campus with the end of Knights Street.

This new bridge provides a key connection for the Stroud Greenway. The SROSRC and the Township hosted a ribbon cutting and trail event at the Knights pavilion on Wednesday, September 5, at 1:00 p.m. Participants and guest speakers included PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn, and Senator Mario Scavello.

“The construction of this bridge sets a great example for our students of what happens when a community comes together and enhances recreation opportunities for the entire region,” said Scavello. “The bridge is an integral key to our community’s trails, greenways, schools, and communities.”

Students are now able to walk from the Knights Park to the Stroudsburg Borough Park in minutes.

“It would take about 25 minutes to get to this area from the high school because of traffic,” said junior Helana Hunter. “Now, it’s just a matter of crossing a bridge to get to the same destination.”
