Things to Do
It’s amazing, really! There’s always something happening, or something to do, in Corry! Here is just a sampling of those ongoing opportunities, as well as some of our annual events:
- If you’ve never visited a fish hatchery, you just have to visit the Corry hatchery on Route 6. Sport fishing is big business in Pennsylvania, and the Corry hatchery is the oldest and longest continuously operated hatchery in the state! Visitors are welcome, and it’s interesting to see these impressive trout up close and personal, and to learn something about the science behind the sport.
- Looking for a peaceful, scenic retreat to re-energize? Visit Mead Park on Mead Avenue, 60+ acres of trees, trails, picnic tables, pavilions, our lighted Little League ballfield, and Alice Lake! The skateboard venue is a neat addition, and in the winter, bring your ice skates to take advantage of the skating rink!
- While you’re at Mead Park, check to see if the Corry Area Historical Museum is open! The genuine Climax Locomotive is just one reason to visit the museum, which is lovingly maintained and operated by the volunteers of the Historical Society. Hours during the summer are: Thursdays from 10 AM-2 PM and Sundays from 2 PM-4PM. Other times are available by appointment. Contact information is available on the website.
- Bring your bicycle, or just lace up your sneakers or boots, and take off on the 6-mile “Corry Junction Greenway Trail” that runs from the north side of Corry through the fields, flora and fauna to Clymer, N.Y. The Greenway Trail is the only rail/trail in Erie County, and in the winter is open to snowmobiles, providing access to the Chautauqua County, N.Y. trail system.
- If you’re joining us in June, perhaps you’ll be fortunate enough to hit “CorryFest,” a three-day event put on by the Corry Area Chamber of Commerce. Friday evening’s activities take place at the Route 6 plaza, while Saturday and Sunday focus on City Park downtown. There’s a classic car cruise-in, music, food, and so much more! Friday, June 17 through Sunday, June 19, 2016
- Or, perhaps you’ll be here for “Glen Mead Days” in Mead Park, celebrating the man who donated the land for the park. There are all kinds of family activities, and another classic car cruise-in, in this beautiful setting.
There’s more, but you get the idea … Corry is a fun place to visit! So come on in, and enjoy!
