Moraine State Park: This state park adjoins Jennings and features Lake Arthur, a 3,225-acre man-made lake that is a representation of a glacial lake that once covered most of the surrounding area, including Jennings. Moraine offers boating, hiking, biking, picnicking, swimming, and cabins for overnight visits.

McConnells Mill State Park: In Lawrence County near the intersection of PA 19 and US 422, this park encompasses the spectacular 930-acre Slippery Rock Creek Gorge, a National Natural Landmark that was carved by glacial ice and water.

Miller Esker: This six-mile long, sinuous ridge of sand and gravel that was deposited when water flowed through a confined tunnel at the base of the last continental glacier, 23,000 years ago. Also called the West Liberty Esker and West Liberty Hogback, the Miller Esker can be found along West Liberty Road, about 5 miles from Jennings. The Western Pennsylvania Conservancy owns and preserves a section of the esker and maintains a small parking lot.

Wolf Creek Narrows Natural Area: Two miles outside of the town of Slippery Rock where West Water Street crosses Wolf Creek, the 115-acre property is managed by the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy and known for its spectacular spring wild flowers. A 1.5-mile trail follows a high quality stream as it meanders through 50-foot cliffs formed by the runoff of a melting glacier.

Old Stone House: This historic inn and museum of rural life, which borders Jennings on the east side of PA 8. The Old Stone House is operated by Slippery Rock University and is open Saturdays from 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M., and Sunday 12:00 P.M. to 5:00 P.M., May through October, and at other times for special events.
