A place where you really breathe the natural air, good to get away and enjoy a good time. Many horses and trees, a giant mansion and many animals, honestly one of the best parks closer to the city of Philadelphia.

Beautiful, relaxing place to jog/walk. Babbling creek and abundance of a variety of trees add to the sound of singing birds. Love that this gem is a stones throw away for me to use everyday

Hiking, horseback riding, painting, photography - whatever is your fun thing to do, you can do it here year-round. I love the grounds around the mansion. Wonderful history there. Very inspirational from an artistic perspective. Pack a lunch and stay a while.

Over the years and many visits to the Media/West Chester areas I have found this to be a good place for a quiet hike. Saw a couple of deer and very few people o a cool day in late October.

The mansion and the surround walkways invite visitors to go exploring! What a beautiful place to begin exploring the Pennsylvania countryside! We especially enjoyed the well marked paths. Lots of wildlife along the paths in the late afternoon!

Nice varied trails, we did the horse/hikers trails so nothing was paved. Wide paths to walk on, can get hilly but nothing overly steep. Do not recommend going during rain or right after rain because it will be muddy.

We go to Ridley Creek State Park for hiking but we see a lot of bikers, dog walkers, picnickers, horse back riders, fishermen, photographers and birdwatchers. The Hunting Hill Mansion seems to host many private events including weddings. The parking is ample but finding the...More

My family loves to hike, we even go on vacations that allow us to hike new places. But we absolutely love Ridley Creek. There are so many different trails to explore and you can make your own path by combining parts of different trails. We...More

No place to purchase food or beverages at the park but many picnic tables at the mansion and at each of the numbered sites, and benches along the trails.

In the past the park hosted group camping, like the Boy Scouts, but I have not seen groups there for a few years. There are no individual campsites.
