Tyler State Park is a day-use Pennsylvania state park on 1,711 acres (692 ha) in Newtown and Northampton Townships, Bucks County, Pennsylvania in the United States.
Park roads, trails, and facilities are nestled within the original farm and woodland setting. Neshaminy Creek meanders through the park (no swimming), north to south. Tyler State Park is home to many different species of birds thank to the diversity of habitats, including mature forests and maintained grassland. The creek is home to water snakes, turtles, eels, and panfishes. The quieter sections of the park are home to foxes, deer, beavers, racoons, rabbits, and coyotes.

Tyler State Park contains a 36-hole disc golf course, a community theater, an art center, several picnic areas, a children's playground, and many miles of hiking and walking trails. One of the main attractions in the park is the Schofield Ford Covered Bridge, originally built in 1874.

  • I've been to many of Pennsylvania's state parks and this is one of the least impressive. There is not a lot to see or do but a good place to walk the trails and take in nature.

  • Beautiful state park with trails for hiking and horseback riding. Schofield Ford covered bridge is located within the park, about 1/4 mile from the parking area.

  • Nice state park with plenty of trails to explore. We had heard a lot about the covered bridge and took the lane 1 trail to the covered bridge. The trail took us 1 hour 45 minutes total but pretty easy and doable. The trail is bike/ car friendly and is completely paved. I wish there was more information regarding all the available trails. We are definitely coming back to explore other trails. I highly recommend checking out the covered bridge and walking across it. IG: journey_man16
