Pennsburg Community Park, E.8th Street, Pennsburg

Pennsburg Borough acquired two parcels of land along East 8th Street and Long Alley in March of 1999. The first property measured approximately 10.14 acres and the second, 3.6 acres. In November of 2005, the Borough purchased the former Green Lane Tool and Die building adjacent to the park. This parcel adds 4.6 acres to the total park area.  Together these properties are now known as the Pennsburg Community Park. On March 10, 2009, demolition began on the Green Lane Tool & Die building.  Future plans for the area include a playground, walking trails and picnic spots.

Pennsburg Nature Preserve, E.5th Street, Pennsburg

The Pennsburg Nature Preserve, located off of East 5th Street, is the perfect location to spend a peaceful afternoon.  Enjoy the walking trails or take a chair and sit in the shade and enjoy the sounds of the Macoby Creek.  Our goal is to continue to improve this area. If you are interested in volunteering your services to help maintain this important Open Space area, please contact the Borough Office at 215-679-4546, ext. 3.

In August of 2002, the Borough of Pennsburg, applied for and received a Growing Greener Grant from the Department of Environmental Protection in the amount of $44,550.00.  The grant monies were used to make improvements at the 5+ acre Nature Preserve on Macoby Street.  Due to the impact of land use in our community, storm water run-off into Macoby Creek was a concern. With the help of Monroe Ecological Services and local volunteers, the streambed restoration project was completed in April of 2006. Many man hours of labor went in to the construction and installation of "fascines" which helped to stabilize over 400 feet of the Macoby Creek bed. Selectively planted grasses and shrubs aided in further securing the area. Nearby, volunteers helped to establish a tall grass meadow and butterfly garden along with planting over 100 trees.

Pennsburg Community Ball Field

Looking for a new way to advertise your business?
Pennsburg Borough owns and maintains the baseball field on East 8th Street in Pennsburg. This field heavily used by many local baseball and softball leagues and organizations in the spring and summer months.

To help defray the costs of maintaining the field, we offer businesses the opportunity to advertise with signs displayed around the perimeter of the baseball outfield. Pennsburg Borough charges an advertising fee of $75.00 for the season (the second week of March through October 30th). We will store the sign for you over the winter and display it again in the spring. The sign size is 4’ X 8”, painted on wood.  You would need to contact a sign maker to have your
sign made.
Please contact the Borough Office at
215-679-4546, ext. 3, if you are interested or have any questions.

The first game played on the Pennsburg Community Ball Field was on May 5, 1999. Long time Council Member Phyllis Bittenbender, threw out the first pitch.
Today, the ball field is maintained by the borough and is used by several softball leagues on a regular basis.
