Stopped by a quite park in Hanover, Pa today. Even with th
e heat index being (105)what it was it still felt OK under the trees! And there where a few people out enjoying the afternoon !
Looks like the park was created when 2 family's donated the land to the Lions Club of Hanover. I can't find a date but that really makes little difference. The township placed the play equipment in 1976 . Happy that the Forney and Young family left this for all of us to enjoy.
Young Woods is a small park with some playground equipment for the kiddos. And 4 large pavilions with multiple picnic tables. Charcoal grills are beside each pavilion for your use. I could just imagine the charcoal smell !! Great place for a company party, reunion, or just a family get together. You need to contact Penn Township for application for group get together.
I suppose there really are better parks, but this park is so quite and forgotten most days. I have not stopped by for a few years. Not sure why just seems like other larger parks have taken over. But it is nice to enjoy a quite less traveled spot. And enjoy a quick packed lunch. Out of the hustle and noise that life creates. Just me the birds and some time to reflect. Have to remember to come back soon. And bring my grand-kids for some fun on the play equipment and a nice lunch-or dinner cooked on the grill. Can you think of a better way to spend an afternoon?
