The Lancaster County Department of Parks and Recreation offers environmental and nature education programs year-round to the public, school groups, and other private groups of all ages.

The Garden of Five Senses in Lancaster County Central Park is open to the public year-round. As its name implies, this garden provides stimulation for all the senses. Interpretive signs along the garden’s meandering walkway explain how each of our senses works and how we and other animals use them to survive.
