Exploring Bellefonte: Talleyrand Park
While it’s been a whirlwind of unpacking, business meetings and trying to figure out our new life, there has been (very little) down time to explore and learn more about our new community.
With a new, flexible schedule, I’ve been able to take the dogs downtown to walk frequently, and have visited Bellefonte’s Talleyrand Park quite a bit.
“In the 1960s, Bellefonte Borough Council developed plans for a park at the site of the deteriorated McClain block,” according to the Bellefonte Historical and Cultural Association’s website.
The park has a brick-covered seating area that surrounds a beautiful fountain, large gazebo and walking path that runs through great landscaping along the water.
Historical photos of the area that became Talleyrand Park are available for viewing here.
