2012 Patch Readers' Choice Award
Tamanend Park was a winner of the 2012 Patch Readers' Choice Award.
In 1975 Upper Southampton Township and Centennial School District partnered and purchased approximately 103 acres of land to form a community park in Southampton. Today this beautiful park attracts dog walkers, hikers, tennis players, picnickers and nature lovers. It hosts naturalist programs. There is a vernal pond, a spring-fed pond, butterfly garden, herb garden, picnic grounds, athletic fields and a playground. There is also a band shell for summer concerts. Historic buildings occupy the site.
The Friends installed the Tribute Rocks honoring Chief Tamanend for whom Tamanend Park is named. There is an elm tree that is a descendant of the William Penn Treaty Elm.
Many unusual trees are on the property, such as Redwoods and Sequoias.
