The fish hatchery has been there since long before I was a kid. We would go there and feed the fish and just walk around checking everything out. It's got places to picnic and just to have a relaxing time with the kids or just...More

This is a great place to take in nature- not far from the busy highway but secluded too. The fish are always hungry! Be sure to walk toward the far end to purchase fish food from the vending machine or visit the small wildlife center...More

We watched a red tail hawk dive into the creek and fly away with a large trout in its talons - an amazing sight to see. Outstanding start to walking path along Cedar Creek. A true gem hidden in the center of Lehigh Valley.

Interesting watching the fish swim and you can buy food pellets at the general store. They have picnic benches for snacking so bring a picnic basket. Also have a nice trail to walk along the creek where we saw kids swimming in the water.

45 min may do it. It would be a nice break to Stretch legs. There is a big parking lot just steps from The fish. If you buy fish food there, bring lots of hand sanitizer. It's potent.
