Township Events



Rich Phifer, Director of Property & Recreation, has scheduled 3 dates this winter for his ever popular History Hikes. He will take you on a guided hike through Harmony Hill Nature Area that focuses on the history of the park and the many interesting ruins and monuments, both man-made and natural, that commemorate a colorful history of former uses and private ownership of this now-beloved public property. This hike will stay within the 240-acre Harmony Hill Nature Area, taking participants on many of the property’s trails, some of which feature challenging slopes and surfaces. Please dress and prepare for winter conditions and potentially slick trails as it is not uncommon for there to be snow on the trails this time of year. This hike is sure to please anyone that enjoys the outdoors, history, and Harmony Hill Nature Area during the best time of year to see the park’s many ruins under the gentle softness of a winter afternoon’s light.  This is a free event but limited to 10 people or less, preregistration is required by emailing .  The hike is approximately 2 hours long.

All hikes will start at 2pm and attendees will meet at the Harmony Hill Nature Area parking lot, 1200 Skelp Level Road, Downingtown, PA.
