Little Crum Creek Park
107 Yale Ave, Swarthmore.
Open daily until dusk. Volunteer monthly second Saturdays, seasonally with Friends of Little Crum Creek Park.
The largest park in Swarthmore contains a gazebo and relaxing benches with a small creek cutting through its landscape. Although much smaller than the other locations mentioned, its quaint and secluded spot away from traffic provides a peaceful afternoon walk or picnic spot. This local park contains picnic tables, a bridge, and a lawn area for all to enjoy. The non-profit Friends organization associated with the park will continue tackling invasive plants and replacing them with native species this summer. The park is open from dawn to dusk.
I cannot recommend spending your time in this park enough. There is so much to see in this enormous park, (almost) too many birds, and historical landmarks scattered throughout. Trails are open from dawn till dusk.
Upcoming events include but are not limited to:
- Saturday, June 10 (9 a.m. – 12 p.m.) Swarthmore farmers market table with free native plants, second Saturday park cleanup
