Welcome to Preservation Parks of Delaware County

The mission of Preservation Parks is: To protect and conserve the natural and historic features of Delaware County and to inspire outdoor exploration and learning.

Our goals are to preserve green space in our rapidly developing county and to provide environmental education to its residents. Because parks add value to our quality of life, Preservation Parks is committed to continuing to acquire and develop additional areas which can enrich our lives and provide clean, safe places for recreation and relaxation for all members of our community.

Enjoy your visit and return often,

New park open hours will begin Nov. 1

Beginning Nov. 1, we will move to a Summer/Winter schedule for the park open hours, rather than base the closing times on the sunset. Winter hours will be 8 a.m.-7 p.m., November – February, and summer hours will be 8 a.m.-9 p.m., March – October. This will allow visitors some extra time in the parks, and will be an easier schedule to understand and adhere to.
