Park Facilities

Pocopson Park is located between Locust Grove and Wawaset Roads, north of Corinne Road.

There are two parking lots:

  • 477 Locust Grove Road, West Chester, 19382
  • 575 S. Wawaset Road, West Chester, 19382

Recreational facilities on the Locust Grove Road side of the Park include a playground and tot lot. Built in 2007, the facilities feature a spiderweb-like structure that encourages development of upper body strength. This equipment is geared to 5 - 12 year olds. To keep our youngest residents entertained, the Township also acquired a horse-shaped climber appropriate for toddlers. Originally shaped like a dinosaur, the design of this structure was modified to more accurately the Township's rural character.

Also on this side of the park is a pavilion that provides a large, shaded area for picnics, Scout and community meetings, etc. Six picnic tables and two grills are available. The Township soccer and baseball fields are close by, along with bathrooms.

On the S. Wawaset Road side of the Park are tennis and basketball courts. Across the street is the northern end of a paved bikeway that runs south and parallels S. Wawaset Road down to Lenape-Unionville Road.

You can access the park's loop trail from either parking lot.

Looking for a longer walk with a terrific view? On the Corrine Road side of the Pocopson Park trail, about halfway between S. Wawaset and Locus Grove Roads, there is a crosswalk. If you cross Corrine Road and continue along the gravel trail, you will reach the northwestern corner of a 1-mile loop trail that runs behind the Barnard House on S. Wawaset Road. Turn left and walk up the hill to be rewarded with a scenic view of the 70 acres that were transferred to the Township from the County in October 2008. Limited parking for this trail is also available behind the Barnard House.

For park reservations, please call the Township Office at 610-793-2151 or e-mail receptionist@pocopson.org. Residents and local athletic clubs can reserve the soccer and baseball fields, tennis courts, basketball courts, and pavilion / picnic facilities.

Pocopson Creek Park has a short walking trail, benches, and a view of Pocopson Creek. You may park at the Public Works building, 1440 Lenape Road; the trail begins just south of the parking lot.
