Find Local Parks

Being well, having fun, and strengthening our communities are some of the ways that local parks and recreation enhance the lives of all Pennsylvanians. It’s good for you. It’s good for all. We welcome you to click the Find Local Parks button and start finding some good of your own right here in New Garden Township.

About the Park

New Garden Township Park is located in Landenberg near the intersection of Route 41 and Newark Road.  The playground, paved trails, work out loop, baseball and softball fields, Lyceum Hall and pavilions can be accessed at 8934 Gap Newport Pike.  There is also parking for the soccer fields and nature trails at 299 Starr Road. The park was established in 1997 and has been steadily growing in size and activity ever since.  It is a beautiful park 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! We are pleased to utilize the historic Lyceum Hall 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.
