  • The park is okay, but the real draw is Mt Pleasant. It is 30 to 40 degree incline so even a simple hike up is a challenge, so it is great to train on for hikers, runners, walkers, climber and anyone l...  more »
  • Great place for a picnic, tennis or just enjoying the beautiful view from the top of Mt. Pleasant!!!  more »
  • Very neat place. Nice large playground and picnic area. Little pond for kids to fish. Tennis courts are nice. Hiking trail to the top of a scenic overlook of Lancaster. I would call it a moderate hike...  more »
  • Really nice park. They've got great bathrooms right by the play area, a huge area for playing and even some special stuff to accommodate kids with disabilities. This is my kids favorite park.
  • This is a very nice park!! I was only here for about an hour and was able to see quite a bit. Including the spectacular view from the top. The main trail to the top is pretty difficult (for an overweight male like me anyway.. haha) but don't let this persuade you not to try it. It is gravel most of the way, and there are stone benches every couple hundred steps or so if you get tired. The view from the top is very worthwhile. It was about 750 steps from top to bottom (I am 5'11") and only took me about 15 minutes to the top. There is a very nice pond right by the parking lot when you pull in. That's all I was able to see on this visit. But I will be back.
  • So pretty love the mountain and water and the view. Safe kid friendly park
  • Rising park offers ample space for picnicking and playing, has tennis courts and a jungle gym for the kids. There are also trails that go up Mount Pleasant, a 250 ft. sandstone bluff, that offers nice views of the area.
  • If you've never been to Rising Park put it on your list! It's beautiful!
