Neshaminy State Park is a 330acre Pennsylvania state park in Bensalem Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania in the United States. Visitors to the park can catch a glimpse of the Philadelphia skyline from a hiking trail on Logan Point. The park is located at the confluence of Neshaminy Creek and the Delaware River. Neshaminy State Park is just off Interstate 95 on Pennsylvania Route 132.
Most of the lands of Neshaminy State Park were donated to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania by the estate of Robert R. Logan in 1956. Logan was a descendant of James Logan who was the colonial secretary to William Penn the founder of Pennsylvania. Dunks Ferry Road, which forms the western boundary of the park, is one of the oldest roads in Pennsylvania. It was built in 1679 by Dunken Williams to provide access to his ferry which crossed the Delaware River. Dunks Ferry Inn was a major rest stop that served travelers from the mid-18th until the late 19th century.

  • super-park with different types of recreation. you can walk along neat avenues, or immerse yourself in a wild forest thicket above the river. in summer there is a spacious pool with water slides. many barbecue areas and just clean, fresh, not at all urban air.
  • This is a very nice park. They have walking (biking) trails. The River walk is the best trail to take. It offers beautiful scenic views of the river (estuary). I was pleasantly surprised to see that the river has a sandy beach you can walk on. Fishing is also permitted in certain locations aling the river but check with park management first. The Park rangers are located in a building on site.
