Social Distancing (8/26/2020)

All visitors are required to wear a mask when entering state park buildings.

     Visitors can help keep state parks safe and clean by doing the following: wear a mask, wash your hands or use hand sanitizer regularly, avoid touching your face, eyes, and nose, cover your nose and mouth when coughing and sneezing with a tissue or flexed elbow. If you are sick, stay home.

     The best advice to slow the spread of the coronavirus is to stay home, not recreate in large groups, and practice social distancing (stay six feet apart). If you are looking to be outdoors, stay as close to home as possible including your backyard, neighborhood, or local park or trail unless they are crowded or closed.

Update 7/17/2020

     All state park beaches are open. Beaches and associated parking areas will be limited to 75 percent of normal capacity in green counties. Possession of a mask is required and recommended to wear when not in the water. We ask visitors to follow social distancing mitigation measures.

     Reservable boating facilities, restroom facilities, pavilion rentals, park offices, visitor center exhibit halls in day use areas, family campsites, organized group tenting, amphitheater, cabins, unique houses, lodges, cottages, and yurts are OPEN. Masks are required to be worn in park offices and any other indoor public space. Masks are also requested to be worn during your visit throughout the park when you are unable to adequately social distance.

     Events and public educational programs have resumed. Indoor events and gatherings of more than 25 persons are prohibited. Outdoor events and gatherings of more than 250 persons are prohibited. Masks are required to be worn at all events and programs. Please call the park office before you visit with questions.

     As part of Pennsylvania’s COVID-19 mitigation efforts, group cabin camps will remain closed for 2020.

Warning: The spotted lanternfly has invaded our area. This invasive insect could cause serious harm to Pennsylvania’s resources, businesses, and economy. LOOK BEFORE YOU LEAVE! Help us stop the spread of these unwelcome hitchhikers. Inspect your vehicle, camper, tent, gear, etc. before you leave the park and destroy any lanternflies you find. For more information, visit the Penn State Extension’s Spotted Lanternfly website.

Theater

Home to the Langhorne Players, Inc., the Spring Garden Mill was once a grain and feed mill. The Langhorne Players are a volunteer community theater company that has converted the mill into a small theater for the production of unusual, thought-provoking plays and cultural events.

Tyler Park Center for the Arts

The Tyler Park Center for the Arts occupies a building that was once an equestrian and hay barn. The arts center converted the barn and surrounding buildings into artist dwellings, workshops, and studios. They offer classes and workshops. The annual Crafts in the Meadow Fall Invitational Craft Show helps support the arts center.

Learn, Experience, Connect

The park offers a wide variety of environmental education and recreation programs. Through hands-on activities, guided walks, history hikes, and workshops, participants gain appreciation, understanding, and develop a sense of stewardship toward natural, historical, and cultural resources.

Curriculum-based environmental education programs are available for schools and youth groups. Teacher workshops are also available. Group programs must be arranged in advance and may be scheduled by calling the park office.

Programs are available from September through May. For more information, contact the park office.
