Welcome to Preservation Parks of Delaware County

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 the lives and provide clean, safe places for recreation and relaxation for all members of our community.

Our maintenance and park police staff are professional and proud of the quality of our parks and their role in keeping the parks in excellent condition. And, our education staff is eager and excited to share with you the variety and beauty of the plants and animals under our stewardship.

Enjoy your visit and return often,
