Lions Pride Park in Warrington Township was recently recognized as a 2021 Great Public Space in Pennsylvania by the Pennsylvania Chapter of the American Planning Association.
The 47-acre park resulted from much community involvement, including students and a partnership between the township and Lions Club. The unique, ADA-compliant park offers both traditional and nature-based recreational and educational opportunities for visitors of all ages and abilities. Among children’s attractions is Kids Mountain, an area for creative free play and winter sledding, formed from the existing landscape and planted with native plant species and pollinator plants along the climbing area. For adults, the Grove provides a place to relax and socialize.
There is also an array of visual, audio, tactile and sensory experiences throughout the park, including a beacon phone application to hear audio descriptions of points of interest and a music alcove that incorporates sound into the park.
