About the Park

New Garden Township Park is located in Avondale near the intersection of Route 41 and Newark Road. The park was established in 1997 and has been steadily growing in size and activity ever since. Patrons can enjoy a large playground, walking paths and fitness centers as well as softball and soccer fields, and beach volleyball courts. It boasts a gazebo from which to watch the action or just take in the Southern Chester County quiet. There are designated bike and roller blading trails as well. Two pavilions with electricity and grills may be reserved for $60.00 to house family reunions, parties, and other occasions. Call the office at 610-268-2915 to reserve your pavilion.

Parks & Recreation Committee

We have a new building! Those of you who attended camps were introduced to our new Parks and Recreation building in the middle of the park. We are pleased to utilize the historic home located at the top of the park between the two parking lots. As this building is structurally and cosmetically spruced up, we hope to be hosting many more events here.

For information about the Parks and Recreation Committee or to be notified about the latest Receration events, programs, and news, please contact Tony Scheivert by email or phone: 610-268-2915 Ext. 102.

If you are interested in summer camps, don't hesitate to contact Tony for information on science and sports camps coming this summer. If you have any ideas or requests, let us know. Volunteers for events are always welcome!
