State, county, regional and community parks and open spaces are located in all corners of Pennsylvania and everywhere in between. Thousands of local parks, 120 state parks, and millions of acres of state forest land are managed as public spaces for your recreational enjoyment. Land trust organizations have protected special areas with features of particular interest like old-growth forests or high quality streams. These special places may be open to the public at all times but others are only able to be experienced with a guide. All are available to be used and enjoyed through Get Outdoors PA events.
Consider looking for a location close to home to explore during the week, or plan a weekend excursion to a far-away part of Pennsylvania for a different outdoor experience. Click on a region of the state to find an activity type that you would like to try!
