  • A nice place for a picnic along the Susquehanna River. Lots of land for the kids to run. The barn is nice for the kids to see a barn in person.  more »

  • Beautiful spot to spend some time, especially sitting down by the river watching the water (very peaceful). I did do a tour of the mansion, but it was many years ago - my visits are just to enjoy the park. They keep it nice and clean, well maintained. There's lots of parking, but I prefer to go when there are few other visitors.
  • Events here are very enjoyable. Bring cash as vendors at events may or may not use Square. Most activities trend to be free.
  • Attended for the Dauphin County Wine & Jazz Fest and was quite impressed at how well organized the event was. The grounds were impeccable and people were awesome. Definitely a place to visit!
  • Nice park with an okay view of the massive stone arch railroad bridge over the Susquehanna River.
  • Really pretty place. Nice seats by the water. Playground for the kids.
