welcome to Anson B. Nixon Park

WE ARE EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE THE OPENING OF THE NEW ENTRANCE WAY! 


THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU...FOR YOUR PATIENCE!
KAPA is thrilled to inform you that as of today, the new entrance and other new features are OPEN! We sincerely hope you enjoy the easier access to the park along with the other improvements.

Some minor work still remains and most of it should be able to be accomplished while the new driveway remains open. If necessary, as a safety precaution, there may be a time when the contractor will have to close the entrance temporarily. We promise to minimize any closure.
Once again, thank you for your patience.  Please take a moment to let us know you think.

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.
