Explore Bath parks through walking tour

This summer, Bath Township invites you to come “Back to Nature and Explore Bath Parks.” To encourage this exploration, historians at the Bath Township Museum have created informational signboards, which tell the history of each park.

Guests are invited to experience this free park history walking tour, featuring seven park properties with historical information signs. Pre-registration for the tour is requested during the month of June at bathtownship.org. The tour will be available from mid-June to mid-August, which allows for one park visit a week, or guests may visit them all in one day. Bath Township Parks are open daily from 7 a.m. until dusk.

To receive credit for taking the tour, visitors must walk a trail to a sign. Once there, take a selfie on a smartphone with the information signboard as proof of your visit. If you are registered and visit all seven parks, you will receive a “Bath Township Parks” lanyardby visiting the Bath Township Museum and presenting proof of your park visits.

While at the museum, take time to explore the new exhibit “Bath Schools and Parks – Then and Now,” which includes a gallery of Bath Park Board President John Landis’ photos, taken in Bath Township parks. Museum hours are Monday from 2-4 p.m., Wednesday from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. and the last Saturday of the month from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. For this special event, the museum will be open from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. every Saturday in August.
