  What do our ratings mean?
 
A wading pool for the kids and trails to explore the outdoors. Where else to spend a great afternoon?

Bradley Palmer State Park is a great place for adults and kids alike. This destination takes you to the east entrance, where several picnic tables, a wading pool, a bikeway and a few hiking trails will allow you to spend a full day or an afternoon full of activities for the whole family.

Parking lots are not always all in use—in the worst case you will park outside the entrance and walk for about 300 yards to the pool.

The main road along the pool is closed to car traffic. This bikeway is therefore a great way to explore the park safely with the little ones. Whether on your bike, on their own or in a bike trailer, children will enjoy this one-mile trek all the more as it allows you to reach the other side of the park where the headquarters are situated.

If you prefer walking, you can explore the several hiking trail on the pool's side of the park – they extend on both sides of the bikeway. For a longer walk in the park, check our Walking in Bradley Palmer State Park destination.
