Chambersburg Memorial Park is located close to Route 30 and Route 316 in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. The 37-acre park is home to several sports fields, pavilions, and a bandshell. Our reason for visiting is the two playgrounds, one for toddlers/preschoolers and another for ages 5 and up.
The tot playground has unique features, including small houses, a fire engine, and two tandem swings. The swings allow you to sit facing an adult or friend. The small houses are adorably crooked, and even have a mail box in front.
In between the two playgrounds is a large pavilion. On the opposite side of the pavilion is the larger playground for ages five and above. This playground also has a unique multi-level rope course and slide structure. The most popular part of this playground is the long zip line.
Memorial park is also home to Chambersburg Aquatic Center. A post about that will be coming soon! This park is also close to Norlo Park, which features free train rides on select days in the summer and fall.
