1 pm until 4 pm

Join us for a Walk in the Park at Aquetong Spring.

Co-hosted by Solebury Township Aquetong Spring Park Advisory Committee and Solebury Township Historical Society.

 

  • Dress for the weather, pack a picnic (with drinks and a blanket), put on your walking shoes, and explore our newly-reopened Aquetong Spring Park and Nature Preserve. 
  • Learn about the environmental science, the engineering, and construction that helped to restore and preserve this special site.  
  • Examine some of the mini habitats that emerged from the removal of the dam.
  • Wander through the park on our newly-laid-out paths. 
  • Meet members of the Lenape Nation of Pennsylvania to hear their stories and learn about the role Aquetong spring played in pre-colonial Lenni Lenape Culture.
  • Find out about the importance Aquetong Spring and Watershed played in the economic history and development of the Township from the colonial period into independence and nationhood.
  • Hear about the importance of the trout inhabiting the stream to the overall health of the Watershed and the park as a whole.  (And see if you can spot a few in the stream!)
  • Talk to an expert on the birds and animals that live in the Park and see if you can identify any of them during your walk.
  • Find out what will happen to the Bond House and see a portrait of the man who built it.
  • Take a few pictures – or paint or sketch a few!
  • And DON’T FORGET THE KIDS!

Located along U.S. Route 202 and the corner of Lower Mountain Road, this 48-acre site was acquired by Solebury Township in 2009 from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
