Six Mile Creek Park
Sixmile Creek Park was one of several properties purchased by the County using Project 70 funds in the late 1960s to provide public recreation areas to Erie County residents. The park, located in Harborcreek Township, is bordered by Interstate 90, Station Road, Depot Road and Clark Road, and is comprised of 450-acres of mostly forested open space. Sixmile Creek flows through the park, creating a deep gorge with steep bluffs. The park has no active recreation developed.

Master Site Plan Development
An advisory committee was formed to make recommendations regarding the Park’s use and future role in providing recreation to the public. The committee advised the County to apply for funds from DCNR to complete a master site plan, which would outline any future developments and recreational opportunities as determined through the public participation process, while also meeting the obligations and expectations of the Commonwealth with regards to the Park’s purchase with Project 70 funds. The County, through the master planning process is looking to improve the access issues to make the park accessible to all citizens of Erie County.
