Shortridge Memorial Park

Shortridge Drive, Wynnewood, PA

The East Branch of Indian Creek, a headwater branch for Cobbs Creek, flows through this park.  Impacted by stormwater and mowed-to-the-edge landscape practices the stream banks were eroding and impacting water quality.  In 2009, the Conservancy worked closely with Lower Merion Township and Shortridge Civic Association to stabilize and plant one-third of the stream bank   Funding to complete the project is now in place.  The township is undertaking a park master planning process in 2013 which will include a plan for completing the stream bank stabilization work for the rest of the park.
