Neshaminy State Park is a 330acre Pennsylvania state park in Bensalem Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania in the United States. Visitors to the park can catch a glimpse of the Philadelphia skyline from a hiking trail on Logan Point. The park is located at the confluence of Neshaminy Creek and the Delaware River. Neshaminy State Park is just off Interstate 95 on Pennsylvania Route 132.HistoryMost of the lands of Neshaminy State Park were donated to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania by the estate of Robert R. Logan in 1956. Logan was a descendant of James Logan who was the colonial secretary to William Penn the founder of Pennsylvania. Dunks Ferry Road, which forms the western boundary of the park, is one of the oldest roads in Pennsylvania. It was built in 1679 by Dunken Williams to provide access to his ferry which crossed the Delaware River. Dunks Ferry Inn was a major rest stop that served travelers from the mid-18th until the late 19th century.

  • Beautiful views and pathways of nature. There is plenty of picnic area including a play area for children. Big clean pool for summer fun  more »
  • This park is very clean, the waterfront is gorgeous and the pool is very well run. We at least go there once or twice a month. The playground is also very well kept!  more »
  • Good place to do a few miles run/walk. Path is both paved and dirt in the woods. You can choose to stay on the paved path or go through the trails in the woods.  more »

  • Decent running/hiking/biking wooded trails. Great views of Neshaminy Creek and Philadelphia. Not a huge place though. Plenty of picnic tables for groups. Pavilions available for rent. Public pool with day rates during summer. Restrooms. Drinking fountains. Charcoal grills. Great dog watching.
  • Great place to take your Family on a summer day! Pool price a bit expensive but great for BBQ 'N
  • Great park for short walks and plenty o f benches for resting great place to sit and have lunch
  • Great park to take a morning hike. But, it is recommended to come here on weekdays. On weekends, the park becomes a zoo. Trash everywhere, Loud music, too many kids running around etc. Plus, dont go to the pool. Not only do you have to pay $10, but people tend to poop or pi$s in the water. I prefer walking to the riverfront. It has a small beach for kids to play on. And when the water is high tide, you can put your feet in the water. It feels very relaxing. In a nutshell: Park on weekdays= 5/5 Park on weekends= 3/5
  • I grew up in this park love going there almost daily. People need to start picking up they're trash that they leave behind I don't care what race you are all you Philly people. I think the Do Not litter law does not apply to you
