Wissahickon Valley Park is a 1400 acre park contained in Fairmount Park that has a red covered bridge. Its points of interest includes Cedars House, Glen Fern, Hermitage Mansion, Historic Rittenhousetown, Monastery, Northwestern Stables, Thomas Mansion, Wissahickon Environmental Center, and Wissahickon Hall.[1]

Wissahickon Valley Park Trail (also called "Forbidden Drive") was named in the 1920s and follows a creek of the same name because cars were forbidden from driving on it.[2]
