We live nearby, the east side entrance off of franklin road is the closest for us but the nature center on the west side is where we went this past time. There are bathrooms at both ends. This is a good place for short hikes without being far from civilization and usually plenty of other people around which makes me... More

What an amazing place to get in your Fitbit steps! Trails set in nature. We walked around the lake. There were turtles sunning themselves on fallen logs, geese, birds & a blue heron. This is a fantastic way to stay in shape.

I love Radnor. I have been there more than 200 times. My husband proposed to me at bench #42. It's almost guaranteed to see deer or wild turkey every time, occasionally owls and other wildlife too. You can only take your pet walking on the road, not the trails. And no running is allowed, and some people mind these things... More

Love this place! There are varying levels of walking/"hiking" trails, and you are bound to see lots of great wildlife. The views are also great! The only downside is the parking. Even during off times, parking is very limited. It makes it difficult to go here on beautiful days during the spring or fall, especially on a weekend. If parking... More

Radnor Lake is a lovely park with well maintained paths and loads of wild life. There are many trails of different difficulty to choose from, as well as guided canoe trips and special events throughout the year. (the nightime Owl Watch was a treat for my kids). Pets are not allowed on the trails but you can take them on... More

Friends told us about this park and it did not disappoint. The paths are maintained quite well and there were lots of people out and enjoying nature. We even saw some deer and turkey while there. It is a very popular place as parking was a little hard to come by, but worth the effort to get. Mountain and lake... More

Beautiful park with plenty of easy trails (I have little ones). We ended up walking the entire lake; which was about 2.5 miles. Quiet nice walk though the woods. It has rained for the 2 days before so it was muddy, be prepared with your shoes. Parking is tough...we want early and there were a few spaces, but when we... More

We go to this park in every season and it never disappoints-in the fall you see deer everywhere, in the early spring take a walk in the woods searching for budding wildflowers and and in the summer enjoy the lake-but my favorite time of year to visit is directly after a new snow in the winter, what a magical winter...
