Hiking, horseback riding, painting, photography - whatever is your fun thing to do, you can do it here year-round. I love the grounds around the mansion. Wonderful history there. Very inspirational from an artistic perspective. Pack a lunch and stay a while.

Over the years and many visits to the Media/West Chester areas I have found this to be a good place for a quiet hike. Saw a couple of deer and very few people o a cool day in late October.

The mansion and the surround walkways invite visitors to go exploring! What a beautiful place to begin exploring the Pennsylvania countryside! We especially enjoyed the well marked paths. Lots of wildlife along the paths in the late afternoon!

Nice varied trails, we did the horse/hikers trails so nothing was paved. Wide paths to walk on, can get hilly but nothing overly steep. Do not recommend going during rain or right after rain because it will be muddy.

Parking is a premium. Asphalt trails and more side trails great for hiking or biking. Old mills and farm houses some very much occupied. Birds and Trout some of the wild life with Deer.

The creek itself is very lovely and changes with the seasons. Apart from the main path which is paved there are many smaller side paths for the more adventurous. Some take you right to the creek and the scenery is lovely.

No place to purchase food or beverages at the park but many picnic tables at the mansion and at each of the numbered sites, and benches along the trails.

In the past the park hosted group camping, like the Boy Scouts, but I have not seen groups there for a few years. There are no individual campsites.
