Green Lane Park, located in western Montgomery County, offers a variety of outdoor activities including hiking, biking, horseback riding, cross country skiing, boating, and camping. The 3,400-acre park has two camping areas, one for families and organized groups and one for equestrian camping. The park also includes three separate bodies of water totaling 870 acres. Park visitors can fish at Knight Lake. Privately-owned non-powered and electric boats can be used on Deep Creek Lake; rentals are available on Green Lane Reservoir (privately-owned boats can be used after a 10-day quarantine.) Boat rentals are available from Memorial Day to Labor Day at the Hill Road Day Use Area.
There are 25 miles of trails to explore as well as picnic tables and playgrounds to enjoy. The park also offers concerts in the summer months and educational programming on weekends. Green Lane Park is also a popular place for birders – the Delaware Valley Ornithological Club offers a self-guided tour that highlights species you can expect to see.
The 80-acre Church Road Bird Sanctuary attracts a variety of shorebirds in late summer and early fall. This means that visitors may not fish or boat in this area. Besides birds, visitors may see deer, fox, beaver and squirrels, all of whom call Green Lane Park home.
In addition to the park trails, hikers may enjoy the section of the Perkiomen Trail that goes through the park. (Note: at the time of this writing, this section of the trail is closed while repairs are being made to the bridge.)
