The Sacred Oak of Oley Valley

SacredOak

Residents and visitors to Meadow View Farms can experience the grandeur of the biggest tree in Berks County, the Sacred Oak, just off of Friedensburg Road in Oley, PA. The 500 year old Chinkapin Oak is 73 feet tall, 21 feet wide and covers over 118 feet with its canopy. The Delaware Indians regarded the sacred oak as a shrine tree; legend has it that a powerful chief visited the tree when his wife was gravely ill and upon his return, she miraculously healed. The Sacred Oak is on the Pennsylvania Forestry Association’s Champion Trees of Pennsylvania website and has it’s own Facebook Page.

Due to a change in property ownership, if you visit the Sacred Oak, please stop at the house nearby and ask permission. Photo courtesy of the Sacred Oak Facebook Page.

Philadelphia Voted “Best Urban Upgrade”

Philadelphia was recently featured in Outside Magazine’s “The Thirty Most Incredible Trips to Take in 2015” as the Best Urban Upgrade. A bike share program called Indego was recently launched promoting more ways to get around, and a 3 miles of multi-use trails were added to increase more outdoor recreation. Other great transformations have been the newly built boardwalk stretching before city’s landscape, which is perfect for jogging and biking, and the opening of Dilworth Park, which offers greenery, a cafe, and displays public art breathing new life and nature into the city’s common places.
