A Walk In The Park

PARK The Bug

Spend a day remembering the Park of days gone by…the “Summer Playground of Pennsylvania”

Continuing our “Gone but Not Forgotten” theme, the Society is excited to announce our sixth Annual Preservation Tour, A Walk in the Park.  Step back in time this year as we revisit the early days of our beloved Hershey Park. Remember when you could 

       walk in for free

                 canoe on Spring Creek 

                         swim in Comet Hollow            

                                 ride the Bug for 10¢?

  • Take a private walk through original areas of the park.
