A great place to exercise whether someone is walking, jogging, running, or biking. There are many trails to explore and the long trails can go for 5 miles or more. It's one place to go get the mindset off the workplace.

There are several sections of the park and my favorite is the 5 mile loop. I use it when training for the Broad Street Run or just for exercise. There are many trails where people walk in the woods.

, the park has several playground areas. All well maintained. Stop at the park office and check the map on the board for locations. They are just about in every picnic area in the park...hope this helps

Already answered above...this is correct info. I think the closest RV campground would be the KOA on RT 162 about 30 minutes away, south of West Chester PA

There is no public transportation to the park. If you are down town you should use Philly car share for the day and drive out yourself. I would not recommend Uber as often times I have had friends get stuck out in Media... More
