This and Birmingham park are the actual sites of the Brandywine battlefield. Sandy hollow has a nice view overlooking a portion of the battlefield. It's a quite a lovely view. Also there's a nice mile long recently paved walking jogging loop.

The festivities of the re-enactment of the Battle of Brandywine at Sandy Hollow 2017 was a lot of fun. The reenacters take it very seriously but are very friendly. It was like stepping back in time! Highlights were the three young people who performed songs...More

I often park here to walk my Yorkie. The path which goes around the rolling open field is about a mile with 2 uphill challenges.

What's not to like? This land was part of the Battle of the Brandywine during the American Revolutionary War. It is a pastoral piece of land that looks very "Chester County, Pennsylvania" (i.e., it might have made a nice Andrew Wyeth painting). The center is...More

About a mile through a meadow or farmed field, this battleground serves up history and exercise in a great package. The top of the paved trail offers fantastic views of the surrounding countryside.

Part of the geography of the Battle of the Brandywine. I had understood that this ground couldn't be built upon as there were revolutionary soldiers buried there. It is now a preserved park with a great walking trail. It is worth a drive to get...More

Interesting perspective on the Battle of Brandywine. Vast open area with historical overtones. Now used primarily as a walking path for the locals. Several plaques and historical landmarks depicting battle of September 11, 1777 (Revolutionary War).

Sandy Hollow is close to home and very well kept. The path is paved and the grass on either side is always cut. Less worries about ticks. Dog walkers are courteous and clean up after their canines.
