Marsh Creek, Downingtown, PA
Did you know that we have a unique summer retreat in our own backyard? When I first experienced Marsh Creek, I was overwhelmed. Where is the creek? This is more of a lake that looks as if it belongs in Minnesota.
I was blown away seeing so many folks in their colorful sail boats, fishing boats, kayaks and canoes all cooling off under the blue skies of Chester County. Of course being originally from Delaware County I was always under the impression that I would have to visit the NJ shore or the MD Eastern Shore for all of this. What a happy surprise.
And yes there is a public pool and tons of picnic tables for large gatherings. You don’t have to bring a boat because you can rent them there. You can even grab a drink and a burger from the luncheonette on the dock. So just grab your suit, a blanket or a chair and relax on a grassy knoll or the white sandy beach. You will love this small wonder.
