  • 1.0 star rating 4/7/2016 This review only relates to their wedding services. I was interested in having my wedding here. The 'event coordinator', Liz Poole, took over a week to respond to my simple request for availability. No other staff could assist me because only Liz had the calendar. When she finally did respond, she was annoyed with me and provided lackluster service. Their rate-- $3100 to rent an outdoor space, does not change depending on day (Saturday vs. Sunday), as most venues do. I'm surprised anyone books their wedding here with the kind of service I was provided. Sorry for bothering you, Bowman's Hill.
  • Beautiful place for a nature walk. I went during the fall, so there weren't any flowers to talk about- just leaves and ferns. The map makes the area look big but it's pretty small. The labyrinth was a bit laughable. If not for the big sign I would have walked right by it and missed it. Rocks the size of softballs were placed in circles to make a "labyrinth". My friend and I, as well as a separate group of people we met both agreed that the trails were confusing and poorly marked. I wish this were a free state or county owned park. The highlight of the park was the stone bridge.
  • Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve is a hidden gem in this region. It's a quiet oasis where locals and visitors alike come for a relaxed hike through the woods and along the gorgeous Pidcock Creek - one of the many that feeds the Delaware River. Unlike the many formal gardens in the region, Bowman's maintains its natural setting. Besides a few trail markers, tree labels and benches, you'll simply find preserved nature here. In order to best appreciate the preserve, come during a weekday. Weekends bring crowds which changes the feeling. Those in good shape can travel through the park to its West end where a gate opens to Tower road. A steep ascent up the road heads to Bowman's Tower and miles of views of the Delaware.
  • Was there for a friend's wedding, so I can only speak to the event space they rent out. Wonderful outdoor setup, well cared for grounds, and plenty of cover from sun or rain. Perfect location for a wedding.
  • Lovely spot for a quiet afternoon or even a family picnic, with easy access to 2.5 miles of graveled hiking trails. Special events include guest lecturers and other educational opportunities, running the gamut from local history, to birding walks to choosing & cultivating native plants. And the view from nearby Bowman's Tower is striking, especially when the foliage peaks in spring and fall.
