John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge at Tinicum
> fws.gov/refuge/john_heinz
This refuge, made possible by significant community support, is a sanctuary for both humans and animals. Named in honor of the U.S. senator who died in a plane crash nearby, the refuge is a wooded oasis amidst the city’s concrete landscape. Guests
can explore a labyrinth of trails — either on guided nature walks or on their own — and discover a rich diversity of fish, wildlife and plants native to the Delaware Estuary. Visitors can even go off-road if they bring a kayak or canoe and paddle down the 4.5-mile tidal segment of Darby Creek
that flows through the refuge. Admission is free.

33 acres. Located on prime real estate at the end of State Street in Media, it’s a picture-perfect location for an outdoor stroll after grabbing a bite to eat at one of the Borough’s smart and trendy restaurants.
