Blueberry Hill Park
Blueberry Hill Park is Franklin Park Borough’s
premier community park. It is a beautiful 87 acre park nestled in the
heart of the borough off of Nicholson Road. The park is home to many
facilities open to the public. It is a great place to meet up with
family and friends to participate in both active and passive leisure
opportunities. Come and enjoy one of the programs that we offer at the
Activity Center, or rent the facility for one of your parties. Get a
group of friends together and play a baseball or softball game on one of
our four ball fields or play some sand volleyball on one of our two
courts. Take the little ones for a day of fun at the “Blueberry Patch”
playground or one of the other two playgrounds located in the park.
Tiger Pride football calls Blueberry Hill Park home with its state of
the art playing field. Before leaving don’t forget to stop and see the
historic log house located by the lower meadow area.
