The former Ironton Railroad has been transformed to provide a safe, year-round recreational opportunity for local residents and visitors. The 9.2 mile trail follows the Coplay Creek eastward from North Whitehall through the 110 acre Whitehall Parkway to where the creek flows into the Lehigh River. The wide, flat, gentle grade of the trail combined with easy access provides an outdoor recreation opportunity for people of all ages and physical abilities.

Historic Catasauqua Preservation Association

HCPA traces its beginning to 1983 when a small group of residents banded together to prepare applications for the establishment of two national historic districts in the Borough of Catasauqua (Lehigh County, Pennsylvania): the Biery's Port historic district and the Mansion district. HCPA, now over 300 members strong, remains active in the community via events, including speakers, home and garden tours and restoration efforts, that highlight Catasauqua's rich history. The organization's headquarters is located in the 1826 Biery House.
