Tinicum Park is located along the Delaware River, in Erwinna, Tinicum Township; just follow the River Road to the park entrance. Framed by the river on one side and a steep mountain ridge on the other, the visitor is offered a splendid long range vista of this beautiful park.
The park is also rich in Bucks County history. The John Stover house, seen here, was originally built in the early 1800s by William Erwin, son of Arthur Erwin, who had purchased the land in 1761. Thus the town Erwinna. Previously, this area was owned by William Penn as part of his land grant from the King of England.
The barns and other outbuildings are wonderful reminders of the local history.
View of the ridge line on a cool, crisp day in Tinicum Park. The Delaware Canal is at the bottom of the ridge, marking the park boundary, just beyond the lower level of trees.
The Delaware Canal State Park marks the western boundary of Tinicum Park. The canal stretches from Bristol, in Lower Bucks County to Easton. It is possible to walk from Morrisville to Easton without leaving the canal path.
There are plenty of picnictables, and a covered pavilion, in case of rain. If you come during the week you might get the whole thing to yourself.
The clear blue sky and long shadows of late autumn mark the approach of winter, as the Delaware River flows by Tinicum Park.
However, in the summer time the river is full of activity. There is a small, boat launching area in the park.
A long earthen ramp provided easy access to the second floor of the barn.
There is a playround, and frisbee golf course
Green grass and large shade trees make Tinicun Park a great place to park the car and take a walk.
