We love picnicking by the lake, kayaking, and sailing on beautiful Lake Galena. A wonderful, tranquil place.

We recently discovered this little gem and have been there 3 times in the past couple of weeks. This is a beautiful park that surrounds Lake Galena. They have a bike loop that goes around the entire lake and I think its about 6 to 10 miles, but aside from that there is much more to do. The paths are... More

This park surrounds wonderful Galena Lake in Bucks County. The Nature Center is on the eastern shore and a must see area for wildlife and bird lovers. Fabulous trails for hiking or biking or just a casual stroll. Wonderful birds along the lake, from Green and Blue Herons to Egrets, Osprey and even Eagles. The nature center building has nice...

Peace Valley Park is one of my favorite places! I have been visiting the park since I was a little girl. It's a great place to take photos and explore. I especially love the bird blind located near the nature center on Chapman Rd.

I like going maybe once a year but sometimes not appealing. I think it could be nicer with less Geese droppings and overflowing trash bins. Now maybe I go a the wrong times but I think Tyler park is much nicer and more scenic. I will make the longer drive to go there for a walk.

Picnics in the park can be a lot of fun, whether you stay on the boat rental side or Saylor's lake on the other side of the Lake. Pleasant walks thru the park, 6 miles around the lake. Lots of wildlife. Birds galore.

Peace Valley is a beautiful public park in the heart of Bucks County, but it is in desperate need of renovations to its walking/bicycle path. The paths are in disrepair, but more importantly, need to be widened to provide walkers a safe path free from speeding bicycles. There's plenty of room for two separate paths. This would make a dramatic... More

Have been coming here for many years. Always enjoyable. Have biked, hiked, boated, partied, picniced, and cooked out here. It's always great. Small downside is the bathrooms are closed from around October to March (not sure of dates), so plan accordingly. On the up side, Peace Valley Winery is right around the corner. We have stopped there to sample and... More
