Shaw’s Bridge Park was named after the original creek crossing located at the north end of the park. The park consists of 37.3 acres and has walking trails, bird watching areas, picnic areas, open field areas for games and kite flying, and access to the Brandywine Creek for fishing and canoeing. The east and west branches of the Brandywine Creek converge at the park. You can park up stream at the Harry J. Waite Jr. Nature Area and canoe down the East Branch to Shaw’s Bridge Park for a short canoe trip. Please be aware that this is not a dog park; all dogs must be under the immediate control of their owners.
From West Chester: Take West Miner Street / PA Route 842 west towards Pocopson. Route 842 merges with South Creek Road just after the Birmingham Road intersection.

The main Park entrance will be on your right after you pass Withers Way (if you reach St. Finegan Drive, you’ve gone a little too far).
