Destination Delco
Set your course for Destination Delco!
Delco is rich in culture and heritage
In Delaware County, we are proud of the fact that our residents are within easy driving distance of a myriad of artistic, cultural and historic attractions. Not only do we have landmarks and institutions that have attracted people for decades, but there’s always something
exciting and new to experience.
This issue of Destination Delco is your guide to all of these attractions, and this spring edition offers
several new destinations you won’t want to miss.
Some people don’t realize that the world-famous Brandywine River Museum of Art is in Delaware County. Yes, that is one of Delco’s cultural gems. This year, the River Museum will host an exciting retrospective of the work of Andrew Wyeth.
Last spring, Widener University acquired Taylor Memorial Arboretum, a 30-acre reserve in Nether Providence, preserving that treasure of natural beauty. Not only is this property historic, but it is also a scenic oasis for hiking and enjoying nature.
Of course, we have the annual Summer Festival in Rose Tree Park, soccer action at Talen Energy Stadium and a place to com- memorate our brave men and women of the Armed Services at the Delaware County Veterans Memorial, all detailed in this issue.
We hope our residents use this magazine and the resources of the Destination Delco tourism center as a guide to all of our attractions, including the county’s parks.
