Theres Long Arm dam off Westminster ave.

Moul Fields, 3 ball fields to play baseball/softball, a walking/biking trail at the back of the fields.

There is always Gettysburg for walking around too.

York County has a large Rail/Trail system; you can walk or bike for miles. There is also a nice park in Jacobus called "Nixon Park". It has a large indoor display, a few ponds, and decent trails to walk on. Gifford Pinchot is another option, just west of York in Dover.

Hi tfunky,

Thanks for all your help. Can you tell me where exactly is Mouls Field and Jacobus Park is? I'm assuming that they are in Hanover? Thanks

Moul fields are off Broadway in Hanover. From Hanover square, head north on 194(broadway), turn right onto Ridge Ave then left on Moul Ave, fields on right.

Jacobus is in York, Pa, why someone gives advice to go there when you asked for info in the Hanover area I have no idea.

You can also try the YMCA on George St, they have a picnic and play area in the back of the building.

Thank you again for your help, I'd like to check some of these places out. I did notice a very nice park with tennis courts on Elm Avenue.
