Delaware Canal State Park Attraction Details
Delaware Canal State Park
http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/stateparks/parks/delawarecanal.aspx
A walk along the 60-mile towpath in the Delaware Canal State Park is a stroll into American History. The U. S. Congress officially recognized the canal's importance to the economic evolution of America was by establishing the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor in 1988. The canal is a Registered National Historic Landmark and its towpath is a National Recreation Trail.

The Delaware Canal is the only remaining continuously intact canal of the great towpath canal building era of the early and mid-19th century. Mule drawn canal boat rides and the Lock Tender's House Visitor Center are at New Hope. The park maintains six public recreation areas with shoreline access to the river. Of the many islands in the river, eleven are protected as the Delaware River Islands State Park Natural Area.

At Easton, the park is making environmental restoration history at the Fish Passageway. Canoeists - both novice and experienced - can launch from public access areas to enjoy the water trail which includes scenic views of River Islands and Nockamixon Cliffs natural areas.

Water trail users will enjoy viewing wildlife along a major migratory route for raptors, waterfowl and songbirds. The Delaware River contains many species of game fish including American shad, striped bass, smallmouth bass and walleye.

Curriculum-based environmental education programs are available to schools and youth groups. Teacher workshops are available. Group programs must be arranged in advance and may be scheduled by calling the park office. Programs are offered year-round.
