Wildlife Watching

Observation Deck

This activity or structure is ADA accessible. Park volunteers built the ADA accessible deck in 1995. The deck provides a scenic overlook year-round, and also provides great views of the butterfly garden.

All 16 species of raptors that migrate on the East Coast can be seen here. The “Watch” begins on September 1 and lasts through October 31. Volunteer compilers are on duty every day, 9:00 A.M. until 5:00 .PM., counting raptors that migrate past the deck.

For more information, or to bring a group to the Hawk Watch Observation Deck, call 215-591-5250.
