Lower Moreland Parks
Lower Moreland Township Department of Public Works maintains five parks located within the community. These parks are utilized by our residents and our sports organization, Huntingdon Valley Activities Association (HVAA). Rules and Regulations are posted at the entrance of each park and we courteously ask that they be followed.
Valley Center Park
Lower Moreland's newest park is located at 445 Red Lion Road adjacent to Lower Moreland High School. The park consists of 31 acres for active and passive recreation. Its current amenities and features include a lighted synthetic multisport field and a quarter mile walking path. The park will soon include a restroom / concession building, a playground and nature trails through the Fairway Farm open space preserve. The 90,000 square foot state-of-the-art synthetic field will support a variety of sports including soccer, field hockey, lacrosse and more. Field rental timeslots may be available for a single event or a season when not in use as the home field for Lower Moreland High School and HVAA Soccer.
