Lower Moreland Township Parks

Lower Moreland Township maintains five parks located within the community. Rules and regulations are posted at the entrance of each park and we courteously ask that they be followed.
No person shall be allowed in any park or playground between dusk and dawn unless permitted by the Township. 

Valley Center Park
Located at 445 Red Lion Road
The park consists of 31 acres for active and passive recreation. Its amenities and features include a lighted synthetic multisport field, restroom / concession building, park pavilion, a playground and one mile nature trail through the Fairway Farm open space preserve. The 90,000 square foot state-of-the-art synthetic field supports a variety of sports including soccer, field hockey, lacrosse and more.

Lower Moreland Park

Lower Moreland Park spans 19 acres and contains three baseball fields, one basketball court, two tennis courts, multiple soccer fields and a playground. There is also a walking path that follows the perimeter of the park. Many of the community's youth athletic league games, sponsored by HVAA, take place on the playing fields of Lower Moreland Park.

Ridgway Park

This 7.5 acre park provides public recreation for both athletic activities and recreation. There is a softball field with homerun fence, two tennis courts and a basketball court. The park also contains a large play area for children of various ages along with picnic tables and benches. 

Elkins Field

Located on Huntingdon Pike just below Philmont Avenue
Elkins Field is currently being utilized as passive open space. The township is drafting a Master Site Plan that would add a trail and several appropriate park amenities recognizing that the low-lying park is a natural basin for flood water and needs to continue to serve that important function. 

Justa Park

This park, located in the Justa Farms Development, is a passive retreat with three acres of wooded land and two small fields.  A neighborhood playground space is under review and may be added in the near future.
