​Comfort Station on Chester Valley Trail

There is now a comfort station on the Chester Valley Trail at the entrance located near the East Whiteland Township building.  Two units were installed on Thursday, June 18, 2020 and have been provided for the convenience of trail users by the Chester County Parks and Trails Department.  They will oversee care and maintenance of the units.  The units are scheduled to be professionally cleaned three times a week. 

If there is an issue with either of the units, you can notify Chester County Parks and Trails directly at 610-344-5656.

Installation of the comfort station comes as welcomed resource as the Township building restrooms are not available to the public at this time.
