The County is developing a Playground and Pedestrian Mall Expansion within Rose Tree County Park.

Public Open House

On October 18, 2021, the Delaware County Planning and Parks Departments, along with design consultants at Pennoni Associates Inc., held an Open House for the Rose Tree County Park Playground and Pedestrian Mall Expansion project.. Residents came to learn about the exciting new playground being planned for construction in Rose Tree Park next year. The open house featured draft designs and concepts on display for attendees to give their ideas and input on the project. County staff and professionals from Pennoni were on hand to take comments and answer questions on the displayed draft design concepts.

The presentation boards from the Open House are viewable at the links below.

If you were unable to attend or have follow-up thoughts, , please send your comments by email to Planning_Department@co.delaware.pa.us by October, 31, 2021. Panel numbers in the corner of the Presentation Boards can be referenced in the comments.

Project Summary

Following the development of conceptual recommendations in the master plan for Rose Tree Park which was prepared in 2015, Delaware County was awarded a $200,000 grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) to assist in the final design and development of a destination playground at the Park. Through a competitive process, Pennoni Associates Inc. was selected as the design and construction oversight consultant.

The project scope of work includes the following improvements:

  • A large “destination” playground in the center of the park, with sections for older and younger children

  • Extension of the existing concrete paved pedestrian mall and walkway

    Related amenities, landscaping, and stormwater management
