Swedesford Recreation Area is Under Construction Now!
Phase 1 of Exton Park's development focuses on improvements near the intersection of Ship and Swedesford Roads, which will be walkable from nearby neighborhoods, such as Swedesford Chase and Meadowbrook Manor, and business complexes, such as Valley Creek Corporate Center and Exton Commons.
The parts for the new playground area have arrived. This area will include:
Nature-themed playset for ages 2-5
Nature-themed playset for ages 5-12
The playsets are being installed in late December, 2021 and should be completed by the end of January, 2022.
Playground equipment arrives in Exton Park
The new playground is at the corner of Swedesford & Ship Rds.
Other proposed improvements include the following:
9-hole disc golf course
New park entrance and signage
Parking lot - Completed!
Accessible pathways connecting the parking lot with all proposed facilities
Restroom building and utilities
We are hoping to open the new park features for all to enjoy by May 1, 2022.
Exton Park is a 727-acre site owned jointly by the Township and Chester County.
In the spring of 2015, the Township opened three multi-use fields which are open to the public and available to reserve for private use. The Township also maintains the trailhead at Pennypacker House, on Swedesford Road.
Exton Park houses a trailhead for the Chester Valley Trail at 132 Church Farm Lane, Exton. This trailhead offers restroom facilities and is maintained by Chester County.
