History

The land for Clem Macrone Park was purchased in 1958 for inclusion in the Township’s park system.The initial construction of the many amenities the park features was completed in 1968. First referred to as Rosemont Park, Clem Macrone Park was dedicated in 1991 to honor Clem Macrone, an active woman in the political community whose property abutted the park and who would allow neighborhood children to access the park through her backyard.  Macrone’s home bordered the park and she would often host community picnics in the park. She loved the community and children who used the park and the renaming was a way to honor her contribution to the community.  Clem Macrone Park is also well known for hosting the Garrett Hill 4th of July Parade and Picnic that is held annually at the park.

Features & Amenities

Located off of Conestoga Road in the Rosemont section of Radnor, this park is surrounded by stately trees and lush natural shrubbery. This 9 acre park features amenities suitable for many types of recreation. The park features a “tot lot” playground and a picnic area with charcoal grills that is available to reserve for small gatherings. For those interested in active recreation, the park contains a basketball court, and two tennis courts. In 2004, a naturally wet area of the park was converted into a community wetlands habitat. The wetlands is located by the tennis courts and features natural plantings, native grasses, and sapling trees. An ADA accessible walking deck and connected asphalt walkway allow passersby to enjoy the natural beauty of the wetlands. Educational signage identifies plant species and informs park visitors about the value of the wetlands to the ecosystem. Clem Macrone Park also has a bathroom facility and off street parking. There is a parking lot located along Conestoga Road with more than 20 spaces and parking available for individuals with special needs. A master plan began in 2014 to evaluate a new layout of the park.

Golfing is prohibited.
