Come enjoy a lunch break, an afternoon or evening stroll, or just sit in the shade. Don't miss Music in the Park on Tuesday evenings May through August.
Merle Phillips Riverfront Park
Sunbury is proud to name this park for the late Merle H. Phillips, member of the PA State House of Representatives representing the 108th District for more than 30 years. Situated at Front and Market Streets and along the Susquehanna River, this park features a gazebo, an amphitheater, and a riverside walking trail. Watch for special events from Spring through Fall!
Keithan's Blue Bird Gardens
This beautiful garden was first created in the 1920's by Sunbury resident Charles Keithan as a hobby. It is now a beloved part of the community landscape featuring many varieties of trees, azaleas, and flowers. Located at the southern end of the city between 2nd and Front Streets, the gardens are a gorgeous setting for weddings or other special events. It's a hotspot for photographers capturing special memories for families, couples, and prom-goers.
