  • Make sure to wear warm clothes and socially distance when appropriate. Nice little park, we liked the areas near the creek. Lots of birds to see.  more »

  • This park is so many things: a still-active farm, a historic site, a gorgeous place where nature thrives, a good running/walking/biking spot, and a community gathering place, and it's dog-friendly. I always enjoy my visits when I'm in the Norristown area. In my many experiences here, it's always been clean and well-maintained. It's massive, so you can come multiple times and explore different parts and discover creeks, old barns, and even a sunflower farm. Just make sure to remember where you parked!
  • We have been there many times... Beautiful park. Ada compliant. ... Ample parking... Safe footpaths...
