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.Put Tyler State Park into our Newtown driving holiday planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

Took the dogs for a walk and it was very beautiful and relaxing at TSP. There were plenty of other people with their dogs and everyone there was very pleasant. more »

Beautiful park! Facilities are in good condition and just enough Ranger presence to be sure no one gets out of hand. Very popular location, especially on holiday weekends.

A vast expanse of park. A good place to picnic. A small and beautiful Creek with a great view. Can spend 2-3 hrs there.

Have been visiting this State Park for 40 years. Large open spaces, trails, picnic areas, and much more. Well maintained grounds. Was there for Yoga in the Park, every Saturday in the summer, weather permitting.

A very beautiful park with plenty of paved and non paved trails. Great place to take friends or family for a day out doors.

Massive park with paved trails for biking or walking. This place is clean, the scenery is gorgeous right on the creek, and although it is usually crowded you can still find some peace. I really like this park.
