About Gallant Woods Park

Gallant Woods Park is a 231- acre nature park that is part of the Preservation Parks of Delaware County system. The park includes woodland, meadow, prairie and wetland habitat; since the creation of several new wetlands, the park has attracted a wide variety of migrating birds, including shore birds, such as the common snipe and American woodcock. The wetlands, including vernal pools in the woodland areas, come alive with sound when spring peepers and chorus frogs fill the air with their songs in the early spring. The park has 2.2 miles of gravel trails, and 1.1 mile of unimproved trail. All the trails allow leashed pets. The park was formerly farmland, and a permanent outdoor display explains the transformation of farmland to parkland, and highlights the wetlands in the parks. The park includes a reservable (60 capacity) picnic shelter and a playground. It is the site of the Preservation Parks summer concert series and several annual events.
