History

Unkefer Park is a 1.5 acre parcel that serves as the gateway to Radnor Township as you travel west from Lower Merion Township along Lancaster Avenue and is located next to Airdale Road. The piece of open space was presumed to be purchased in 1968 with Project 70 grant funds and the total cost of the land was a meager $26,000. The park is located near Austin Memorial Park of Lower Merion Township. The Park was named after Ralph T. Unkefer, former member of the Radnor Township Parks and Recreation Board who died in 1967. 



Features & Amenities
Unkefer Park is a small area of open space located at the corner of Lancaster Avenue and Airdale Road and has no active recreational amenities. Unkefer is a passive park that features a short paved walking path, wooden benches, trees and landscaping, and a Stone-henge-like rock that was donated by PennDot in 1990 when the Blue Route (I-476) was constructed - the project was part of Radnor’s gateway enhancement strategy.
