Silver Mine Park Info & Fees

Silver Mine Park is Pequea Township’s only park. It is a natural and recreational center located 10 miles south of Lancaster. The Silver Mine Park has the best of both worlds and is two parks in one. Its 151 beautiful acres are divided by Silver Mine Road with the south side being a blend of nature and recreation and the north side being more rustic.

The south side of the Park was acquired in October of 1993. Its 84 acres offer hike and bike trails, nature trails, a soccer field, baseball field, playground, catch and  release fishing pond, and a canoe launch. There are two pavilions, picnic tables, and charcoal grills available. Pavilions may be reserved for a fee.

The north side was acquired in July of 1998 and offers 67 wooded acres with hiking trails, catch and release pond, as well as the original Silver Mine shaft and kiln. The Silver Mine has attracted the interest of geologists and visitors since the 19th century.

A historic home and barn complement the pond on the south side of the Park. As a result of countless hours of  volunteer effort, there are a variety of trees, flowers, and vegetation to enjoy. This vegetation has created an environment for many species of waterfowl and birds. Visit today to discover the beauty, recreation and relaxation enjoyed at the Silver Mine Park.

Silver Mine Park is open from Dawn until Dusk.
