Outdoorsmen and women are right at home on Susquehannock State Park’s 224 majestic acres in southern Lancaster County. Besides the awesome view, the park offers a variety of recreational opportunities for year-round fun. Of the county’s six parks, Central Park receives the most visitors because of its convenient location and also because it has more facilities and recreational features than the other parks. With its beautiful array of flowering plants and trees and water fountain, this garden lives up to its name, stimulating all the senses. Central Park also has garden plots which are available from April through October. Gardeners can grow vegetables and flowers in these plots. And, organic plots are also available.

Of course, Central Park also has wonderful trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. These trails meander through fields, woods, and along creeks.

Railroad buffs find the region’s rich history well preserved at the Strasburg Railroad and Railroad Museum.  And musical performances and theater abound at the Sight and Sound Theater, Fulton Theater, and American Music Theater.

Lancaster County is also home to eleven colleges and universities including Franklin & Marshall College, Millersville University, Penn State – Lancaster, and Lancaster Bible College, all offering life long learners a wide variety of academic and cultural opportunities.
