Parks and Recreation
Monocacy Creek Park:
Dedicated in 2012, the newest addition to the Borough’s parks and recreation system is Monocacy Creek Park. The result of intergovernmental collaboration between DCNR, PennDOT and the Borough of Bath, the Monocacy Creek Park is an aesthetic “walk-through” park and is home to various wildlife- including the aquatic, avian and horticultural varieties.
Located at the intersection of S.R. 329 (Race Street) and Green Street, this 6 acre park is home of America’s Friendship Tree. Bordered by a tributary of the Monocacy Creek and the Keystone Rod & Gun Club, this park provides a large, open space play area with playground equipment, volleyball court, and a baseball field. Keystone Park is also home to the Bath Farmer’s Market, which runs from May through to the last week of September each year. The recently reconstructed Keystone Park Pavilion is available for rental during the spring and summer seasons. For more information please call the Borough Office at 610-837-6525.
