“Great place to stretch your legs and get an amazing view.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

I have been to Rising Park several times and it never fails to take your breath away. (Sometimes literally if you are out of shape.) It is a great hiking spot that is rewarding once you reach the top. You peer over all of Lancaster. Very beautiful. It'd be very slick when rainy, but it is a good sunny day adventure. They also have plenty of room for a picnic and some frisbee!

“Very nice park centrally located in Lancaster”

Very nice park centrally located in Lancaster... I hadn't been to this park since I was little. I recently visited and it was still as nice as I remembered. I would recommend this park!

“Best bang for your buck.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This great park is centrally located near the middle of lancaster, between the HS n College campus and the county fair grounds. The park has several shelter houses that can be rented for parties, there are restrooms, ample parking, nice play ground area for smaller kids and one for the bigger kids too, there is a climbinf rock, tennis courts, baseball diamond, gazebo, two fishing ponds, a nice sized hill for sledding, Mt. Pleasant for hiking up to see a great view of the fairgrounds as well as the city itself and lots of places to play in the fields.
