“Great for pictures”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

We spent a beautiful fall morning walking and taking pictures. The grounds were well taken care of, and lent a perfect backdrop to some pretty shots. My children loved piling and plunging into the leaves, and we will definitely be coming here more often.

“Excellent 5 mile loop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

Ridley's 5 mile loop is an extraordinary place for families and individuals. You can walk, run, or bike. The trail is paved and includes mile markers. You can bring your dog and they even supply doggy stations so you can cleanup any left behind reminders. The trees and vista are beautiful and the creek keeps you company along the trail. We try to exercise here often. I especially like the information posted along the way sharing information about the kinds of trees native to the area.

“Variety and Close”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

This is not a park for a scenic tour. This is a park to do things, walking, bicycle riding, fishing, archery hunting for deer, picinicing, horseback riding, and more, all happen within the park. It is an amazing retreat that is very close to Philadelphia. It is closed two days a year when special hunts are conducted, with hunters selected by lottery, using buckshot to help control the deer population. I participated in one of those hunts this year, and I was very impressed with the organization and safety precautions taken to make this an excellent event. I'll be hoping to be selected again next year.

“Terrific Local Park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

A great place to walk, hike or ride a bicycle. The couple of miles along Ridley Creek with the shells of revolutionary era buildings makes for a most pleasant visit. The loop is 4.3 miles with a 0.4 mile tail at the lower end. The park can be entered from several locations. Esp pretty in the spring and fall

“Biking, hiking, or a family walk, great place to get outdoors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

I visit RCSP on an almost weekly basis and sometimes more often. For me I am mostly riding my bicycle through the park. Sometimes it is a walk on the multi-use trail. The trail follows Ridley Creek closely for quite a ways, so most recently the fall colors, as reflected in the stream have been peak and beautiful! For anyone in the area needing to get outdoors, or to take guests for a lovely walk, this is a great destination.
