New Playground at Keehner Park

A new playground has come to town. Located on the east side of Keehner Park, near the basketball/tennis courts and ball fields, the new playground broke ground in early 2018. The playground includes four slides, monkey bars, a climbing pole, a balance beam and an “Xcelerator” spinning feature designed for children ages 5 to 12. The existing playground, designed for kids ages 2 to 5, and swing set will remain in place. West Chester’s Keehner Park also features rentable shelters, creek-side wooded trails, recreational fields, an amphitheater and more.
