  • We enjoyed it very much and had a wonderful Sunday here. This is a very suitable place for summer hiking, there are trees and water, the scenery is pleasant. We'll be there again!

  • Oh. What a beautiful place right in the middle of a busy hustling bustling city. Went on a cool, breezy day. Was amazing. It's so Serene and quiet. I could walk here and explore nature all day long. People come to fish, dogs have fun in the water as well. There are two options you can choose. One route takes you in the jungle with no proper trail board to walk on and the other one is mainly paved road, but the view is pretty anyway.
  • I've been running in this park for 25 years. It is so beautiful and a perfect place to run, walk, ride bikes and hike. There are many challenging hiking trails and a many beautiful features like the red covered bridge, the Valley Green (restaurant) and Cedars House. Very family friendly, and furry friend friendly.
  • Love this park. Over 50 acres to hike in. Perfect date and picnic location. Catch up with your loved ones while getting exercise. The river is peaceful. I enjoy hiking here but also meditating near the water. This is a great place to bring your dog 🐕. Also tons of walking and biking trails to take so every time you go you can do something different. Easy to get to by public transportation; I took the 26 bus. Of course you can drive there and there is ample parking.
  • Beautiful park with long and well maintained trails. Some trails can be very steep and caution is advised. Bonus - It’s close to Philadelphia downtown. Love it in every visit. Got some park benches along the stream. Parking is available in multiple areas. Great place to spend evenings. Do not feed the birds though.
  • This park is beautiful! Some of the trails were closed because of weather but there was still so much to explore. It's very clean and was pretty empty when we went
