  • This is one of the parks I visit most often. Although you must register for the guided Gorge hikes, I highly recommend that you check the website and schedule yourself for one of those -- it's a wonde...  more »
  • Nice park for walk, cross country skiing. In the summertime lots of programs for kids, medium size of group gatherings. There is a gorge in the park,not too deep,steps are easy to manage.  more »
  • Penitentiary Glen has a feeling of going back in time to perhaps the Civil War when there were enemies in the woods. I was told that prisoners were held in the glen. I could almost hear their shouts o...  more »

  • Penitentiary Glen is a beautiful park. The glen got its name not from a former corrections facility, but rather from the sheer (literally) depth of the eponymous landmark. Not only are there some wonderful trails to walk, but also a beautiful nature center and a scale train you (or your kids) can actually ride on (check their events page for dates of operation for the train). They also host a myriad of educational programs, including my personal favorite: Bug Day.
  • We enjoy walking through the visitors center and seeing the animals at the rehab. Today, they had squirrels that kept flying into the window, too funny! After, we walked around the center to the back side to relax. There really is a lot to do here. Love it!
  • I got engaged here under a tree near the gorge. It will always be a top spot for us. Go visit! It's a fun place if you are into walking.
  • My kids love the Nature Center and seeing the birds, especially the bald eagle. I also hear theres ab awesome new outdoor play area.
  • Amazing place. Wild life rehab and like 5 nature trails of various distances. They are constantly improving the place. And there is a train that kids can ride.
