Upper Salford Park
The Upper Salford Park, located at the corner of Schwenksville and Salford Station Roads, (click here for MapQuest map) offers something for everyone. There are soccer, softball and baseball fields, a volleyball pit, tennis courts, and basketball nets. Playground facilities for our younger visitors provide child-friendly challenges in a safe and well maintained environment. Our pavilion has public restrooms, plenty of picnic tables and charcoal grills for family picnics, and is available to rent for private parties. There are 4 miles of trails that snake through the charming butterfly garden, around our various sport and recreational fields, and over the beautiful scenic grounds with tables and benches for resting or picnicking. Our annual tree lighting ceremony in December is straight out of a Norman Rockwell painting!
