Celebrating One Year of Hershey's Chocolatetown Construction

Take a Look at 12 Months of Progress on the New Region of Hersheypark

One year ago today, Hersheypark broke ground on Hershey's Chocolatetown, a new region at Hersheypark where guests can eat, play, shop and gather year round. The $150 million transformative expansion is the largest in company history and a 23-acre development.
