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 the first third of the stream bank in the park. The Township worked on the second third of the stream independently of the Conservancy in 2013.
