Currently, the Township owns Community Park on Hobson Road, which was purchased and developed as our first park. In addition, the Township purchased land adjacent to the ball fields behind Lafayette Fire Company was developed as Lafayette-Tower Park. Finally, the Township owns approximately 43 acres of land behind the Wal-Mart store on Lincoln Highway East, which was donated by Robert and Agnes Flory and is currently being developed as Flory Park.
Township residents may now donate trees or benches for Township Parks and remember a loved one at the same time. October Glory Maple trees will be planted in Flory Park and Lafayette – Tower Park on a first come first serve basis. For a donation of $400.00, an October Glory Maple tree will be planted and a plaque will be installed under the tree to remember a donors loved one. All Memorial trees, benches, and plaques are installed and maintained by Township staff. Trees and plaques will be located along walking paths in the parks. Specific tree and plaque locations will be selected by the Township. Approximately 50 of these kinds of trees were planted in Community Park on Hobson Road with great success. Community Park is now fully planted along Memorial Lane and so this program is being extended to the other Township Parks. Please fill out the donation form and forward it to East Lampeter Township, 2250 Old Philadelphia Pike, Lancaster, PA 17602. If you have any questions, please contact the Township office at (717) 393-1567 or e-mail the Public Works Director.
