History

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.
