A list of best things to do in Delaware County this weekend, April 9th -11th

   


What to do this weekend with your family? Here is a list of things you can enjoy with your family this weekend: Please call ahead before leaving your house to ensure the venue is still hosting the event. Due to the new COVID guidelines, many venues have had to cut back on the number of visitors they can allow.


The Museum will be open for members only during our first two weekends: April 8-11 and April 15-18. New memberships are available for those who wish to come to the Museum during our first two weekends!  Reservations Required



Drop in during spring break week and make your way to Enchanted Woods, a fairy-tale magical landscape for playful music, crafts, and games. Included with admission. Free for Winterthur and DMNH members.


Help your child catch their first fish, a memory that will last a lifetime. Our Family Fun Fishing Derby provides younger and novice anglers an opportunity to experience the fun of our Fishing Derbies in a less competitive atmosphere.


Daytime, evening and holiday-themed hayrides run throughout the seasons. Hayrides are family-friendly and we operate many hay wagons at the same time during our peak hours. If it's your first time visiting Linvilla Orchards, taking a hayride should be at the top of your list!
 


Travel back in time 66 million years ago and journey to an age when dinosaurs roamed the Earth. Encounter 24 life-size creatures, learn about these prehistoric giants, the rise of humans, and our impact on wildlife and the planet!  Timed tickets are required.


Spring is in the air! Don’t miss our seasonal event, Springtime In The Park. Enjoy 4 fun-filled weekends of rides, coasters, Hershey Characters, ZooAmerica North American Wildlife Park visits, and so much more!


Help celebrate nature and protect the environment with our Earth Day volunteer event. Each year, we bring together diverse volunteers from the community, including individuals, families, scout troops, and youth groups, to work on projects that improve wildlife habitat, protect important natural resources, and preserve the park’s plant and animal communities. Past projects have included planting trees, installing bird boxes, and stream cleanups.



Reel in fun and enjoy a day fishing at Linvilla's Orchard Lake!  Orchard Lake was originally constructed to provide irrigation water for some of the farm’s many crops.  However, creating a fishing destination was an equally important priority.  In 2004 trout fishing opened at Orchard Lake, and it has been a popular activity ever since.  Reserve tickets in advance.




It’s almost time to awaken your senses and revitalize your soul with the vibrant hues, fresh fragrances, and natural sounds of spring in our Gardens. Reservations Required

Each night Miss Debbie will read chapters from a selected book until it is finished. 
We will then start on a new story.
So get on your pajamas, get a snack and your favorite blanket and enjoy!!



Urban Air Trampoline and Adventure Park have adventures behind every corner. They are the ultimate indoor playground for your entire family. Take your kids’ birthday party to the next level or spend a day of fun with the family, and you’ll see why we’re more than just a trampoline park.

This winter, it’s all about outdoor spacious, indoor oasis, and the power of story.

Outside, envelop yourself in a feeling of peace and tranquility with a walk amongst the dramatic silhouettes of trees that stretch far into the sky, as soothing, textural grasses and seed heads guide you along the way. Take time to examine the winter garden's fine details, set against the fresh, crisp air of winter.

Inside, step into a sanctuary of warmth. Look up to an overhead garden of hanging baskets adorned with such vibrant beauties as jasmine, cape-primrose, and lipstick-plant. Find yourself in a paradise of flowers and foliage, bursting with color ... all in a beautiful indoor winter wonderland with a tropical twist.   Timed Tickets Required
