The Silver Lake Nature Center is part of the Bucks County Park System and is operated by the Department of Parks and Recreation. The center is located in the highly populated southern portion of Bucks County. Major highways and public transportation easily access the Center, a 235-acre complex within the Mill Creek Valley Park system. The lake is the terminus of the Mill Creek, Queen Anne Creek and the Black Ditch Creek Watershed. Because it contains the best protected Coastal Plain woodland remaining in the state, the Center is unique to Pennsylvania as well as Bucks County.
