Black Rock Sanctuary
The Black Rock Sanctuary is located on Route 113 north of Phoenixville. It consists of 119 acres of wetlands, woodlands and meadows dedicated to wildlife habitat and public use. A bird sanctuary, this site becomes an outdoor classroom highlighting the breeding and nestling habitat of rare and endangered migratory water fowl.
The Black Rock Sanctuary is located on the Atlantic Coast fly-way for migration stop-bys due to its pond, river and other natural attractions. What once was a coal-silted area, this has become an important nature center hidden in a safe location. Displays highlight the self-guided interpretive trail.
The sanctuary is open daily from 8 a.m. to the posted sunset time. Check the website for the park newsletter to see a map of the area as well as planned programs and events.
