Parks and Gardens


Freedom Playground

A custom-built playground at the new Park and Community Center at Haverford Reserve located between Darby and Marple Roads in Haverford Township. The park is scheduled to open in the Spring of 2010 and we hope to be opening the playground then.


Haverford College Campus

The Haverford campus is an excellent place to get some exercise and have fun, whether you like to jog, bike, swim, play Frisbee, or stroll through the gardens. Visitors are welcome on Haverford's campus, subject to restrictions.
* The arboretum has self-guided walking tours:

•  The nature walk, which runs along the outer edge of campus, is open to any walkers or runners during the day. Dogs must be leashed and cleaned up after.
