The Willows
The Willows Park, named for the stately willow trees that surround this majestic estate, is part of Radnor Township’s trifecta of open space that creeps along Little Darby Creek and Darby-Paoli Road. The Willows Park, Skunk Hollow Park, and Saw Mill Park are contiguous, and together make up 144 acres of some of the prettiest land in northern Delaware County. The Willows property was once owned by the Zantzinger family, and includes a grand three- story mansion, a quiet pond with fountains, and amazing views of the landscaped grounds. It is a popular spot for a leisurely walk or intimate picnic, and the hills become sledding central on any given snow day from school.
Beaver Valley | Chadds Ford & Concord Townships
 Beaver Valley’s breathtaking 1,100 acres fall within both Pennsylvania and Delaware and make up a portion of First State National Historic Park. Affectionately called “The Valley” by locals, the extensive
trail system is a popular destination
for hikers, dog walkers, runners, bikers, cross-country skiers, and horse riders.
A printable trail map is available on the First State Historic Park page at  DESTINATION DELCO 35
