and the Lancaster County Conservancy

A short trip in any direction opens up a host of scenic opportunities.
To the north is Noel Dorwart Park (Mr. Dorwart was a beloved member of the Homestead Village community) and the Lancaster County Conservancy. Together they form a delightful place to hike, run, walk your dog or just enjoy nature. Our employee Couch to 5K participants have spent hours running the trails in these parks and it is a favorite destination!  To our east is Conestoga House and gardens, the beautiful homes along Marietta Avenue, Franklin & Marshall College, Buchanan Park, the North Museum and all of historic downtown Lancaster.  There are an endless number of places to explore, hike and visit.
