Group hiking through the woods with full trail packs.

Event Information
  • Family Walk - This leisurely 3-mile (round trip) walk, using the paved Bradford Dam Trail, will take us along the Little Neshaminy Creek and through scenic woods and meadows overlooking the Bradford Reservoir and Dam. The trail is mostly flat with some gentle slopes near the trailhead and dam. Along the way, our leaders will point out such features as the bird blind; the fishing area where our Annual Fishing Derby is held, and the PECO Powerline trail, which is now being extended to Street Road to link with nearby neighborhoods. Once at the dam, the leaders will explain how the dam protects people and property in the watershed area from flooding.
  • To prepare for this walk, we suggest that you wear sneakers or hiking shoes and a hat, take sufficient water, and snack food for the kids, and bring a camera and walking sticks, if needed.
  • Fishing Derby - The annual Warrington Township Fishing Derby, will be held on Warrington Community Day, September 28, between the hours of 9 and 11 AM. The fishing location will be along the Little Neshaminy Creek, accessed from the Bradford Dam Trail in John Paul Park @Lower Nike. This event is open to children between the ages of 5 to 15, who must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Prizes will be awarded to the lucky anglers who catch the biggest fish (bass and sunfish), the smallest fish, and the most fish during the morning. Participating children must bring their own fishing tackle. Bait will be provided, FREE. Among this year’s prizes is a Gift Certificate to a local fishing store. Last year, everyone had a good time as they caught and released 107 fish. For additional information contact Scott Vogin (Scott@alterationsguy.com).

Bring your tent and enjoy the bonfire, trails, fields, storyteller and flashlight games in the evening. Fire pit and bathrooms on-site. Besides your tent, please bring an item of camp food to share.
