The Collegeville area offers numerous amenities for families and businesses, yet retains the charm and hospitality of a small town. Collegeville is a walkable community, and sidewalks connect most of the Borough’s residential area with its business district. Collegeville also retains its own police force, and as a result, the Borough is one of the safest towns in the Philadelphia region.
The scenic Perkiomen Creek runs through Collegeville, and the recreational Perkiomen Trail runs directly through the Borough, which is used by over 151,000 people each year. Additionally, Evansburg State Park, with over 3,000 acres of woodlands and streams, offers over 6 miles of walking trails and 15 miles of horseback riding trails. Its main natural feature, the Skippack Creek, has dissected the land into ridges and valleys that create feelings of enclosures and provides picturesque views.
Our specialty shops are quaint and offer items you can’t find in most places. Not to mention, we have 2 shopping centers in our downtown shopping area. Whether you are on a tight budget or looking to treat yourself, there’s something to please both you and your taste buds.
Collegeville is a close-knit community, and take great pride in our neighborhoods, streets, and parks.
