Dykeman Park is a 56 acre area surrounding historic Dykeman Springs. Many people know it simply as "the duck pond". It is a preserved open space and Dykeman Springs is on the National Register of Historic places. Dykeman Springs were originally called Indian Head Springs for the Delaware Indians that were living there in 1730. Dykeman Springs is surrounded by Dykeman Park, which is open from dawn until dusk. The park includes several trails (with benches): The Dykeman Walking Trail, The Dykeman Park Meadow Trail, The Dykeman Park Upland Trail as well as two ponds, several picnic tables and Dykeman Baseball Field.
The events are being coordinated and led by a PA Master Naturalist Volunteer Trainee.
As always, you can contact us in the office at 717-530-0261 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
