Along Perkiomen Creek, Lenape park has ball fields, a hiking trail along the creek and two very interesting bridges. There is a parking area where Walnut Street crosses the creek.
Built in 1832, South Perkasie Covered Bridge crossed Pleasant Spring Creek, on the other side of Perkiomen Creek. Condemed in 1958, the Perkasie Historic Society had it moved to Lenape Park where it stands today, crossing nothing but land.
Built in 1936 by the Federal Works Projects Administration, the suspension foot bridge in Lenape Park crosses Perkiomen Creek.
Menlo Park truly epitomizes the classical small town park. It has a picnic pavilion surrounded by tall trees, a playground and a swimming pool. It even has its own carousel, in fact this area was actually an amusement park many years ago. The park is located between Fifth Street and the Perkiomen Creek, just behind the library. A short stroll down the hill brings you to Lenape Park.
The working carousel in Menlo Park is a reminder of years gone by.
The carousel is a wonderful treat for kids of all ages.
The picnic pavilions and playground are surrounded with large shade trees.
The pool is open to the public, although there is a small fee.
This trail leads from Menlo Park, behind the carousel, to Lenape Park along the Perkiomen Creek. The trail is quite steep and much more fun going down than it is coming up.
The ball field at Kulp Playground epitomizes the great American Pasttime. Hopefully pictures will be coming soon.
