Rustic Park in Birdsboro:  it's elusive location lends to it's seclusiveness.   Directions:  from Reading, follow business 422 east, turn right on Rt 82 South  into Birdsboro; don't take the detour, rather continue straight on 82 through Birdsboro, all the way to the road closure.  Rustic Park entrance will be on the right-hand side at location of road closure.

Narrow yet lengthy, the park follows alongside the path of a cool stream, where you can pic-nic or try your hand at trout fishing.  There are several play and pic-nic areas, with something for kids of all ages, including a wooden train to climb through and a pirate ship playset.
