Martic Township Park The Martic Township Park, is located along Rt. 324 South, just before River Road and the Pequea Creek.  Hike through trees and mountain laurel and enjoy the natural, peaceful surroundings. As a reminder, the Martic Township Park is an 'all-natural' park, therefore you might encounter wildlife, such as snakes (copperheads are in these woods) and bees, during certain times of the year  Martic does not spray or eradicate bees.  If you encounter bees, please avoid the area. 


After receiving concerns regarding the safety of the visitors at the MT Park, the Board of Supervisors and             the PA Game Commission is reminding visitors that hunting is permitted in the park.  Since the park is           used by many people and for the safety of everyone, please wear orange colored clothing during hunting           season. Notice to all hunters: we do follow the PA Game Commission's guidelines regarding tree stands. Tree stands are not permitted to hang year round.   


Thanks to the efforts of many different boy scouts and volunteers who have helped to improve the park by posting a park sign, replacing a foot bridge, re-blazing trails throughout the park and updating the park's brochure/map.  Your hard work is well appreciated! 

Please feel free to print a brochure of the park trails and information.
