The nearest park to The Hotel Hershey, a Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel, is actually just across the street — Hershey Gardens. Admission is required, but you’ll be treated to a 23-acre park featuring 11 theme gardens. Popular stops here are the Historic Hershey Rose Garden, which has more than 5,600 roses, and the Children’s Garden and Butterfly House. The Township of Derry is also home to eight public parks, including the Cocoa Castle, a large outdoor playground and climbing structure for children that’s just minutes from the hotel. For a wide open space with history to boot, take the 45-minute drive to Gettysburg Battlefield National Park.
