Camden is a city of waterways: the Delaware River, the Cooper River, the Newton Creek. Its history and culture were once deeply immersed in the water that surrounded the city; Camden was a ferry stop for traders and travelers, a port and a place where some of the greatest vessels of the 20th century were built.
But Camden's residents were for too long disconnected from its waters, pushed away by industries and institutions, by development and pollution.
A coalition of several nonprofits has been working for years to restore those connections. The latest step forward: the establishment of a water trail along the Delaware's back channel and the Cooper River.
