Located on North Walnut Street, just off State Street, Anson B. Nixon Park is a hidden gem nestled just north of charming downtown Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. Comprised of 106 acres, the Park was carved out of the historic woodlands of the late 18th through early 20th century Chambers estate. This natural setting includes two ponds, meandering streams, woodlands including a beech grove with specimens dating back over 250 years, and three miles of walking trails.
Anson B. Nixon Park has many exciting events including the Trout Rodeo, the Kennett Run, disc golf tournaments, and a summer concert series. Other events open to the public include dance performances, plays, and nature programs. The park is open from dawn until dusk daily.
Big News! The Park was recently awarded a grant from the state Community Conservation Partnerships Program (C2P2). The award will be used to construct a safer vehicle entrance off of N. Walnut as well as a much-anticipated dog park. Read the story in the Daily Local here.
