Giving Pond Recreation Area
Join the Friends of the Delaware Canal for a leisurely 2-mile walk around the pond and up on the Canal towpath to spot wildlife and enjoy the scenery.
The sun will be setting and the heat of the day waning as we set off to explore a part of the Delaware Canal State Park Complex that lies adjacent to the towpath north of historic Uhlerstown. The 90-acre Giving Pond was a sand and gravel quarry before it was acquired by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in 2002. Situated between the Canal and the Delaware River, the quarry has been allowed to fill with water and is well along in the process of transformation from an industrial site to an abundant natural habitat.
This summer walk is free and will be held weather permitting. It will be cancelled in the event of storms or steady rain. Check here for a Go/No Go message that will be posted by noon on July 14.
The Giving Pond is located at 1069-1087 River Road, Upper Black Eddy, PA 18972. The parking lot is approximately 1-mile north of the Frenchtown Bridge and .02 mile south of Jugtown Hill Road.
