Pleasant Valley Park was acquired in 1999 by the town of Murrysville to be developed as a central recreation area for active recreation, primarily baseball, soccer, football and other sports that require ball fields.
However, the park remains an open space of 262 acres of woodlands, open fields, hilltops and remote valleys provide excellent areas for many outdoor activities year round.
A hiking trail plan has been developed, that will allow hikes of varying lengths and difficulty, by using combinations of trails through woods and existing old farm roads. There are currently 2.5 miles (5 miles round trip) of trail suitable for mmountain bike riding.
Pleasant Valley Park is great for dog walking because of the size of the park. Like in any other Municipal park, it is important for the dog's master to maintain control over the dog, to prevent disturbing wildlife or other park visitors. The portion of the hiking trail completed is suitable for back-country type cross-country skiing and the opportunities will increase as additional trail segments are completed.
The park is open daily, dawn to dusk.
On-site parking is available.
