Welcome, April! As you prepare for your visit to The Sweetest Place On Earth this month, please know that we are operating in accordance with guidelines outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Pennsylvania Department of Health, and industry partners.

Get Hersheypark Happy  at Springtime In The Park

Hershey, Milton’s Ice Cream Parlor and The Sweeterie Confectionery Kitchen will open on April 2, 2021. Learn more.
