Calling all lavender-lovers! As you head through Doylestown, you may be greeted with the soothing smell of lavender in the air. Just across the street from Peace Valley Park and Lake Galena is the breathtaking Peace Valley Lavender Farm. Fields full of lavender plants come to life in June and July, creating a purple paradise and a great opportunity for visitors to pick their own! Guests can also grab some of the lavender goodies like perfume, dish soap, pillow spray and more from their on-site gift shop, open year-round.
If you've always wanted to learn to sail, Lake Galena at Peace Valley Park is the ideal place to learn. The lake is calm and you're never far from land. Visitors can also bike along the blacktop trail, take in the natural beauty to spy one of 250 bird species, enjoy the meadows bursting with wildlife and wildflowers and veer in and out of the woods along the 14 miles of nature trails.
Overlooking Lake Galena and Peace Valley Park, the vines at Peace Valley Winery produce more than 13 different wines, as well as numerous seasonal wines. The vineyard is also a pick-your-own farm offering strawberries, blackberries, apples, grapes, melons, sweet corn and other fruit and veggies when in season. So, stop by the tasting room and gift shop!
