Norristown Farm Park is a unique place, with an active farm that has been working continuously since the founding of the nation. Hike through these historic farmlands on a paved, easy trail. You’ll also see some historic buildings along the way, including silos. The oldest building on the property is from 1764! Picnic areas and benches along the trail provide nice spots to stop and overlook Kepner Creek. If you feel like exploring, check out the nature trails and open recreational area off to the right. The area surrounding the park is an active working farm, so be mindful of staying on the trails while visiting.
