Located in Media Borough in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, Ridley Creek State Park encompasses over 2,600 acres of woodlands and meadows. The park is only 16 miles from Center City, Philadelphia, but feels remarkably remote. Within the park you'll find a 5-mile paved, multi-use trail along Sycamore Mills and Forge roads that is open to walkers, joggers, cyclists and cross-country skiers.
Traveling along the tranquil, woodsy route, you'll come across numerous picnic areas as well as beautiful waterfalls located in stunning natural settings. In addition, there are over 13 miles of hiking trails, as well as almost 5 miles of horseback riding paths. Be sure to explore the formal gardens, located near the park office, which are a popular attraction and wedding site.
The Colonial Pennsylvania Plantation is also located on the park grounds. A working farm for over 300 years, the plantation reflects life on a Delaware County farm prior to the American Revolution.
The main entrance to Ridley Creek State Park is located at the intersection of Gradyville Road and Sandy Flash Drive in Newtown Square. Parking can be found throughout the park.
