Montco StoryWalk at the Norristown Farm Park - We Walk Through the Forest
Spring is in full swing; celebrate the season by visiting the Montco StoryWalk featuring We Walk Through the Forest by Lisa Ferland from April through May. The story follows a spirited young girl and her playful pup as they create wondrous adventures together in the great outdoors. Imaginations run wild as they walk, hop, and sing through the forest. The Montco StoryWalk is slightly over half a mile in total length and takes place along a paved path in the Norristown Farm Park, located in East Norriton. The trail is perfect for walking, pushing strollers, and is ADA accessible. Visit the Montco StoryWalk today!

New to fishing? 
Want to try, but don't have the equipment? Let us help! Thanks to PA Fish and Boat Commission, Norristown Farm Park is a Fishing Gear Loaner Site. This means we have equipment that can be borrowed! We will supply you with a rod, tackle box, and information for a beginner. To borrow equipment reach out to Rebecca to schedule a time for pick up. Gear may be used at other fishing locations, but must be returned to the Farm Park. Also remember opening day of trout is April 2! Fishing licenses are required for anyone 16 years or older.
