Dauphin County Commissioners Officially Open Detweiler Park

The Dauphin County Commissioners opened the 411-acre Detweiler Park in Middle Paxton Township – the largest of the county’s eight parks.

The property includes a farmhouse, seven miles of walking trails and a fish hatchery maintained by the Dauphin County Anglers and Conservation Club on Clark’s Creek, which borders the park’s western edge. Temporary parking and an entrance to the trails is available at the Dauphin County Conservation District’s headquarters, 1451 Peters Mountain Road.

Public meetings will be held this year to get input for a master plan on what features should be developed, including a new parking area, fields for sporting events and potentially converting the farmhouse to a nature center.
