The Borough has six parks.
Also known as the “tot lot”, this park is fenced on all sides and great for young kids. Originally acquired in 1970, it was redeveloped in 2002, with a demonstration rain garden added in 2008. This park has a fully equipped play area with swings and plenty of other things to climb on! Located close to Downtown Swarthmore, it is a great place to visit and then walk into town for a meal or snack. The park is located on Rutgers Avenue
Located in Downtown Swarthmore, this park was created in 1993 to mark the Borough's Centennial. Take a seat on one of the benches and watch Swarthmore’s daily life pass by.
