Tyler State Park, Newtown

(4.8/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Tyler State Park is a Pennsylvania state park on in Newtown and Northampton Townships, Bucks County, Pennsylvania in the United States.Park roads, trails, and facilities are carefully nestled within the original farm and woodland setting. Neshaminy Creek meanders through the park, dividing the land into several sections. Before becoming a state park, the land was owned by Mr. and Mrs. George F. Tyler who purchased the land between 1919 and 1928. Their first purchase was the Solly Farm, currently leased to Hostelling International at the north end of the park. The Solly House served as the Tyler’s country home until the George F. Tyler Mansion was constructed. The mansion is now the administration building of the Bucks County Community College.The Tylers developed an Ayrshire dairy herd. In addition, they raised poultry, sheep and pigs, and had a stable of about 25 fine riding horses. The croplands were mainly used to supply feed for the livestock.Old original stone dwellings in the park stand as fine examples of early farm dwellings of rural Pennsylvania. Some structures date back to the early 18th century. A date stone (1775) can be found on a house located by the bicycle trail north of the pedestrian causeway in the center of the park. Ten original farm dwellings are currently being leased as private residences.

  • Some dude stole my wallet. I bartered with him for some acorns he said yes and kindly gave back my wallet. Years later we meet on a plane heading to Vegas and we had small talk and I found out he was a squirrel that was nuts for wallets.
  • Lots of trails and paths for hiking or walks. There is a creek running though the middle with canoe and kayak rentals there's also covered area for picnics and lots of benches I enjoy my visits weekly
  • A highly trafficked park in the peak spring and summer months, but totally worth a visit for a hike or playing on the multiple playgrounds around. Also, an extensive disc golf course for those interested.
  • My favorite park in the area. Usually lovely people. Get to see horses on the trail and meet plenty of friendly dogs.
  • One of the best disc golf courses around. Multiple configurations for each hole. Always well groomed. Sprawling area to hike while playing. A little more labeling would help.
