Park Alerts ( 4 Alerts )

  • TRAIL CLOSURE---A construction project has begun on the replacement of the Phillips Mill bridge in Solebury Township.   As a result of this project the towpath will be closed between Lower Limeport Bridge and the pedestrian bridge at Canal Park in Solebury Township.  The trail closure will begin on Monday, April 16, 2018 and will remain in effect until the project is completed. Thru-travelers may exit the towpath at Lower Limeport bridge (Hal Clark Park) onto River Road and re-enter via the Malcom Crooks bridge in Canal Park, Solebury Twp ( and vice versa).  This closure is for public safety due to heavy machinery and vehicles that will be accessing the bridge via the towpath.

  • Water in the canal from Easton south through New Hope is low due to several maintenance issues going on, including sinkholes.  We are attempting to make all the repairs which require low water levels as soon as possible, in order to resume water flow as soon as possible.

  • General Firewood Quarantine: Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture has enacted a quarantine order for untreated firewood of any kind coming into the state. Any firewood brought into the state must be kiln dried, heat treated, fumigated, and/or USDA Certified.

    To protect the high quality and native character of our State Parks from exotic invasive species DCNR highly encourages all visitors to:

    • burn/buy locally cut firewood (within 25 miles)

    • BURN ALL firewood brought from another area. Do not leave it. Do not take it with you.

    • Encourage friends and neighbors not to move firewood

    • Do not remove firewood from a Spotted Lanternfly Quarantine Area. Contact the PA Department of Agriculture, www.agriculture.pa.gov and search on the keyword Spotted Lantern Fly for current quarantine information.

  • Contrary to the information on Google, Pennsylvania state parks are open every day of the year. Day use areas close at dusk. Park offices are open specific hours. Pools, beaches, and campgrounds are open specific seasons.

Park Description

The Delaware Canal is the only remaining continuously intact canal of the great towpath canal building era of the early and mid-19th century. Mule drawn canal boat rides and the Lock Tender's House Visitor Center are at New Hope.
