Glen Providence Park offers a beautiful, quiet greenspace tucked into the bustling modern town of Media. It is the county’s oldest park, established in 1935 as the result of a gift of ground from George Butler, a late owner of the Broomall House and estate. The park encompasses 32 acres of hillsides covered with mature trees and bushes of many varieties, providing an ideal environment for nature study and habitat protection for nesting birds.
In addition to the bird sanctuary, pond, and creek, outdoor enthusiasts appreciate the park’s many features throughout the seasons. In the warmer months, the shaded picnic grove and outdoor stage attract many visitors, and in the wintertime, the park’s popular sledding hill entices thrill-seekers of all ages. Hiking trails offer year-round enjoyment.
