Named for the father of Pennsylvania’s state park system, Goddard is a perfect place for biking, fishing, boating, and picnicking. It’s also close to hunting opportunities at Gamelands 270 and hands-on learning at the McKeever Environmental Education Center.

Founded in 2002, the Friends of Goddard (or FROG) assist the park in many ways: They raise funds for special projects, help coordinate cleanups, and organize the annual Pioneer Frolic the last weekend in June. (The Frolic is a two-day colonial festival complete with reenactments, live music, children’s games, crafts, food, and more.) FROG's accomplishments include outreach activities at Venango County’s annual Earth Day event and donation of a shelter for the park’s 12-mile paved bike trail.

FROG membership is free. Become a "friend" and get involved. Your help is needed with :

The Friends of Goddard are a partner group with the Pennsylvania Parks and Forest Foundation (PPFF).
