Encke Park Playground Enhancement Project

We are excited about the Encke Park Playground enhancements that took place in the fall 2014! The playground allows for better accessibility in a new location and serves a variety of uses including neighbors, patrons of the nearby baseball fields, and for those who attend special events that occur at the heavily-travelled Radnor Township Building/Encke Park complex. Please read below for more information about this great new playground! 

Our playground dedication event was a blast and featured some special guests! 


We also unveiled the new Encke Park Sign!
