Community Park

The park or "grove" is at the west end of town, between the swimming pool and elementary school. This is a public park open to all. There is a kitchen, pavilion and restrooms, all handicap accessible, that are available to rent for reunions or picnics for a non-refundable fee of $100. Payment is due at the time of the reservation.  There is also a $10.00 deposit collected when the grove keys are picked up.  The deposit will be refunded upon return of the keys.  Please contact the Borough office for available dates. 
 

Memorial Park

This park is located at the intersection of Adamstown road and West Main Street, below the elementary school and is owned by the Borough, but has been developed into a memorial park by the Adamstown Lions Club. The club maintains the park for the enjoyment of area residents.
 

Tennis Courts

The Borough has two tennis courts, west of the swimming pool facility. You can access the courts through the pool parking area. The courts are open to the public and used on a first-come, first serve basis.
 

Walking Trails

The Borough maintains several walking trails in the swimming pool/grove area. The trails lead from the grove, around the swimming pool, through the woods to Stoudtburg Road. Another branch of the trail will be added in the near future connecting it to Route 272.
