Our Parks and Recreation Department is managed by a Parks and Recreation Committee. They keep a calendar of those persons interested in making reservations at the public parks, arrange for seasonal entertainment in the park, and decorate the gazebo and large tree for the Christmas holiday season.
Malvern has 3.0 acres of active parkland. Our Parks and Recreation Board maintains a calendar of those persons interested in making reservations at the public parks, arrange for summertime entertainment in the park, and decorate the gazebo and large tree for the Christmas holiday season. The three principal park areas are highlighted below.
Malvern Borough and two other local Municipalities are engaged in an effort to create a walking trail that connects three Chester County Revolutionary War sites, including the Paoli Massacre site.
Samuel & M. Elizabeth Burke Park
Burke Park, just one block away from the Borough Hall, is 1.4 acres. It is used mainly for festivals, concerts and general recreation. The Gazebo and beautifully landscaped area are perfect for outdoor events.
Theodore S.A. Rubino Memorial Park
Rubino Park, our newest recreation area, has 15,000 square feet of play area with a Gazebo entrance. It has been a wonderful addition to the corner of Broad Street and Old Lincoln Highway. The area is fenced in for child safety and provides a great place for picnics and small children play.
The Horace J. Quann Memorial Park
(Formerly First Ave. Park) Horace J. Quann Memorial Park is 1.6 acres and is probably our most active recreation area. It supports baseball, basketball, and open space for volleyball and other activities. It is located at First and Warren Avenues, across from the Borough Hall.
Randolph Woods is a large passive recreation area accessed via Second and Ruthland Avenues. The wooded areas of this area contains a myriad of 'primitive trails' - unpaved packed - earth surfaces. These trails are well suited to walkers and hikers.
John & Marion Herzak Memorial Park
This park is 0.42 acres, located at the corner of Old Lincoln Highway and Bridge Street. It has a high-fenced, full basketball court with paved parking lots accessible from Bridge Street and Old Lincoln Highway.
