We are host to a diversity of natural, historic, and cultural resources. The County's Parks and Recreation Department provides people of all ages the opportunity to learn about and enjoy our community. The Dauphin County Park system includes eight areas: the Community Gardens, Detweiler Park, Fort Hunter Park, Fort Hunter Conservancy, Henninger Farm Covered Bridge, Lykens Glen Park, Wiconisco Creek Park, and Wildwood Park.

Dauphin County Parks & Recreation elevates the community in which we live by leveraging partnerships to produce programming that is forward-thinking. Help us make the entire region a better place to live, work, and play by considering a sponsorship for 2022. Click here to see this year's sponsorship opportunities!
