Situated at the heart of Bellefonte, Talleyrand Park is arguably the town’s biggest attraction. Founded in 1974, this 3.5 acre land still reflects Bellefonte’s Victorian heritage today. The park is sometimes affectionately known as the duck park, and indeed, families love gathering to watch the abundant mallards that populate here. They can also enjoy a picnic and have fun at the park’s playground. Talleyrand has an impressive suspension bridge and charming gazebo, which often served as picturesque spots, including weddings! But perhaps the train is most well known, not just the model one that kids can explore, but the functional train that sells out every winter for its Santa Express event. Talleyrand also hosts other seasonal events such as its fall festival, Easter egg hunt, and Summer Sounds concerts. Indeed, it’s a year-round treasure in Bellefonte. As a photographer, I love the vibrant autumn colors that Talleyrand gives us, as well as their spring blossoms and willow trees.
