The North Park or “Joe K” Trail at the northern end of the city of Havre de Grace is unique with it’s geographic details, and history that goes back to the beginning of our country. Learn about the Susquehanna and Tidewater Canal that operated from 1840 to 1900. You can walk, jog, run, hike and bike this trail. Great place for kids to run off a bit of energy. There is a playground nearby. Dogs are welcome!
Joe “K” Kochenderfer is a fine example of a man who moved to the area for a job and became an actively committed citizen of our community of Havre de Grace. Active as city councilman, on the planning commission, with Boy Scouts, Girls Soccer, the Lock House Museum, the N. Park Trail and so much more.
From their home on Market Street, Jane could see the Concord Point Lighthouse. It was a sad, broken part of the community’s history at that time. And she kept telling herself, “I should care what happens to that piece of history.”
