2369 Lititz Pike | Manheim Township
Landis Woods is the largest tract of undeveloped natural land in Manheim Township. The nearly 70 acre park is mostly wooded and offers a beautiful canopy of foliage. There is lots of nature to explore and is a great place to take kids. There are plenty of logs to climb on and several tree branch teepees to play in. There are multiple trails throughout the park that intersect with one another. Most of the trails are level and easy to navigate. The park also offers educational signs along the trails with information on the trees, birds and animals that are found in the park.
There are 2 entrances into the park. One off of Hillside Lane and another off of Meadow Lane. If you enter off of Hillside Lane you will drive past Boettcher House Environmental Education Center. Parking can be limited here, but if you continue on you will reach the lots that are off of Meadow Lane; which offer plenty of parking.
The park has benches and picnic tables as well as an outdoor stage for the Landis Woods Performing Arts Center.
