Palmer's Park and Open Space System

Our park system includes 14 parks and a number of neighborhood tot lots encompassing over 400 acres of dedicated park space in the township. Numerous sports fields, courts, playgrounds, picnic pavilions and open-space areas comprise the system.  Our bike path system has almost 12 miles of paved paths to accommodate runners, walkers and bikers. The path runs along the Bushkill Creek and Lehigh River and through many open and environmentally sensitive areas and is mostly separated from traffic. The Palmer Pool is a 50 meter facility at Briarcliffe Park open to the public during the summer. Individual, family and senior memberships are offered.


Fox Run Park, 1305 Van Buren Road, has recently been added to the parks system and is located on Van Buren Road north of Northwood Avenue.  This park only has soccer fields at this time.  As it is developed further it will be added to the group below. To see the preliminary layout of the field click here.


We are very proud of our park system and by clicking on the buttons below you will be introduced to each one of the parks.
