“Excellent Family Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014

Great multiple playgrounds for toddlers and up. Very well maintained grounds. Also a great trailhead and hike to the top of Mount Pleasant. Our two-year-old had fun swinging, climbing, sliding, and watching the ducks. Bravo, Lancaster!

“A lovely park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014

Everything you'd expect in a well-used community park. A hiking trail to the top of Mount Pleasant for a terrific view. A pond with fish and fowl. Picnic pavilions. A large playground. Horseshoe pits. Tennis courts. Baseball fields. Stately trees offering comfortable shade. This is one of Lancaster's gems.

“king of the hill.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

rising park is the crown jewel of the Lancaster parks system.....if you've been there, you would know what I mean....spacious enough, that you don't feel crowded...plenty of picnic areas, a nice covered gazebo by the pond, 2 enclosed shelter house (you might need a reservation for a large gathering), one other shelter house on the upper level of the park...some grills for a cookout, a nice tennis court, a ball field....and a somewhat challenging trail to the top of mt pleasant, from which you can see most of Lancaster, and quite a bit of the surrounding Fairfield county...its interesting to imagine what it was like in the early 1700's when this area was inhabited by native americans...its well worth the visit, and well worth the hike to the top....

“well kept and things to do”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013

MT Pleasant is a very nice climb on a path to the top so you can see a beautiful view of the fairgrounds and city. There is no admission, everything is free! There are plenty of tables to picnic at, shelter houses too. Also has 2 ponds to feed the ducks and do some minor fishing. The play grounds are nice as well as the tennis courts. Definitely a Family park!
