Central Perkiomen Valley Park
More than 800 acres along the Perkiomen Creek
Escape the pressure of suburban life and find peace in the natural setting of an 800-acre park that stretches from Collegeville to Spring Mount in Montgomery County.
You can take a picnic and enjoy a simple walk, take your bicycle or even go horseback riding in this park, where the Perkiomen Trail meanders through woodlands, grasslands and the magnificent Spring Mountain.
There are picnic areas at the Park Headquarters on Plank Road, as well as fishing access to the creek, a children’s playground, shuffleboard and large multi-use fields.
Pets must be leashed, and no alcohol is permitted in the park.
The Old Mill House, a turn-of -the-century summer retreat, is available through the year for private rental. The wraparound-screened porch overlooking the Perkiomen Creek — visible in the picture above — is a prominent feature.
