Antietam Lake Park is Berks County’s newest parkland acquisition. At 643 acres, Antietam Lake Park doubled the acreage of the park system and expanded opportunities for enjoyment of the scenic resources of the county. It is located primarily in Lower Alsace Township with a small portion in Alsace Township, just east of the City of Reading.
Hundreds of acres of meandering streams, mature forest, and wetland areas make Antietam Lake Park a perfect setting for outdoor class use. Angora Fruit Farm is located in the center of Antietam Lake Park. A hidden natural treasure, it contains spring-fed ponds, access to Antietam Creek, naturalized meadows, and demonstration gardens. Educational programs on ponds, streams, and fields programs are available at this site.
