> FindAPark/RidleyCreek
Apopular spot for Delco locals to enjoy the outdoors, Ridley Creek State Park has more than 2,600 acres of woodlands and meadows, with the creek meandering right through the middle. There are both paved and unpaved trails suitable for walking, running, dog- walking, rollerblading, or biking. The creek is stocked with trout for fishing and has designated fly-fishing areas as well as a handicapped-accessible fishing platform. There are 14 picnic areas equipped with restrooms and grills, and some have pavilions and playground equipment as well. It’s
a great place to get some fresh air any time of year.
Eastlake Park — Ridley Township >
The Borough of Ridley “Park” certainly lives up to its name. With nine parks to choose from, it’s always easy to find a place to enjoy the outdoors. The largest one, Eastlake Park, is referred to as “The Lake” by locals — thanks to the 14-acre lake (complete with a lighted fountain
and floating fishing dock) in the center of it. The Lake is also home to two important annual summer events: the Ridley Park Fourth of July Fireworks and the Victorian Fair held in September. The Delaware County Daily Times named The Lake one of the most romantic places in Delco, saying its bridges “make
it a popular place for weddings, prom photos and romantic daytime dates.” Sounds good to us — we’re always in the mood for a little summer lovin’.
