The meandering waters of Neshaminy Creek flow through the park and are perfect for the weekend canoeist or angler. Picnic tables and metal charcoal grills lie within each of the seven picnic areas. The bicycle trails are named at each intersection. Most of the bicycle trails are over eight feet wide, paved and designed for easy two-way travel. The asphalt trails are multiple-use trails. Gravel hiking trails to the east of Neshaminy Creek link each picnic area. If you want a longer hike, cross over Neshaminy Creek to the west side of the park via the causeway at the center of the park. The trails give excellent views of the park and surrounding countryside. Horseback riders enjoy many miles of dirt trails on both sides of Neshaminy Creek. Parking for horse trailers is near Number One Lane Trail in the large parking lot across from the craft center. A 27-hole course begins by the Upper Plantation Picnic Area. Course maps with rules and score cards are available at the park office and at the Upper Plantation Picnic Area parking lot. Anglers may fish along the banks of the Neshaminy Creek or from a canoe. Warm-water species include sunfish, black crappie, carp, smallmouth bass and other panfish. Visitors may launch registered motorboats with electric motors. The concession-operated canoe rental operates daily from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day, weather permitting. The creek sometimes freezes and ice skating is permitted near the boat house warming area. Ice thickness is monitored and posted. Ice fishing is permitted on the creek outside of the ice skating area. Ice thickness in this area is not monitored. Slopes below the Upper Plantation Picnic Area parking lot and the slopes west of the covered bridge are great for sledding and tobogganing when conditions permit. Cross-country skiing can be enjoyed on equestrian trails, hiking trails and bicycle trails left unplowed.
