Self-guided Walking Tour of Tyler Park

This annual event is designed as a self-guided walking tour of the historic properties and farmhouses scattered throughout the Tyler State Park grounds. This year, the self-guided tour will begin at 10am at the Boathouse Pavilion on Sunday, September 22nd, 2024.

As part of this ticketed event, representatives from both the Newtown Historic Association and the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources will be on hand to provide a general overview and answer questions at the beginning of the day.

All registrants will receive an informative Tyler Park historical book. This limited-edition, 100-page book contains rare photographs and detailed descriptions of the many historic properties and farmhouses, including the construction of the Tyler mansion, and how they were acquired by the Tyler family in the early 1900s.

Once registrants receive their tour book and orientation, they will be free to tour the park on their own.
