“Nice shaded hiking trail, wildlife easy to spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Great for an easy hike. Lots of shade. Lots of deer and water fowl. Benches available to sit for a while. A little busy on the weekends.

“Radnor is my happy place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

I LOVE Radnor. Every time I go, I see deer, turkeys, turtles, owls, cranes and once I saw a SNAKE! I make it a point to go at least twice a month. One loop around the lake is just under 3 miles, but you can add on extra miles (about 6 total) by doing the extra trails.

One of the highlights of Radnor for me, is that every few months it's a completely different place.
In the summer the trees are full and it's very shady, autumn has scenery out of a movie. Winter is maybe not as gorgeous as the other seasons, but its neat to be able to see further into the forest part of the park and in the spring the fawns are born and all the flowers bloom (take your allergy meds!)

There is parking on either side of the park, but on a beautiful weekend parking fills up fast!

“Beautiful retreat and good hiking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

Took a hike today with a friend at Radnor Lake. There are several hikes....some that go up the ridgeline and some down by the lake. We saw 3 deer close up, a box turtle, turtles sunning themselves, a blue heron, chipmunk and squirrel...there is no cell reception out there, so just go enjoy mother nature and worry about access to your phone and internet after you leave the park. Very pretty lake, nice trails and overall a good time!

“Perfect peaceful getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

This park is a perfect place to take a walk and enjoy peace, quiet and wildlife. It is a popular place to go. This doesn't make it feel crowded except for the parking. Parking is always a challenge. It is worth repeatedly trying though. Beautiful park!
