Norristown Farm Park has a variety of buildings and open fields that represent a diverse history of farming, manufacturing and institutional associations. The buildings date from the mid-18th century through the early 20th century and at various times were part of mills, a tannery, farms and the Norristown State hospital. The unique and breath-taking beauty of the woods and agricultural fields, combined with a stocked trout stream, the Norristown Farm Park has it all.

Where else can a visitor bicycle, walk, hike, run, jog, picnic, fish in a stocked trout stream, walk their dog, or view wildlife in their natural habitats? The Park has over seven miles of paved trails and there are several rustic nature trails available for the adventuresome. Norristown Farm Park is right where you can do all of these pleasurable pastimes and more! We offer the following activities at the Farm Park:

Hiking, jogging, running, roller blading, skating, biking, picnicking, wildlife viewing, nature, photography, fishing, skateboarding, dog walking, and more!

The Farm Park is owned by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and is operated and maintained by Montgomery County. This unique relationship blends recreational opportunities and agricultural activities. 

Hours: Open daily, 6 a.m. to sunset. The Farm Park is closed on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day.
Picnics: There are many areas throughout the park to have a picnic. There are two picnic pavilions that are available for use and the Salt Wing building is available for groups up to 75 people. Groups, organizations and individuals wishing to reserve these pavilions or the Salt Wing for their function need to contact the Park Office for dates and availability.
