Learn about the Playground Project in Rose Tree County Park!

Rose Tree Park is situated on 120 acres in Upper Providence Township. The picturesque park features grassy rolling hills, mature trees, woodlands, a charming gazebo, picnic areas, and a retired steeplechase. The park is a popular destination for cross country running, photography, dog walking, hawk watching, charitable events and more.

Rose Tree Park is home to three historic buildings: the Leedom House, the Hunt Club, and the old Rose Tree Tavern. Several county offices occupy the Leedom House and the Hunt Club, and the Delaware County Visitor's Bureau occupies the recently renovated Rose Tree Tavern. The old tavern was built in 1737 and appears on the National Registry of Historic Places. Opposite the old tavern lies the Community Garden, consisting of 118 garden plots which community members may rent seasonally for a nominal fee.

The Festival of Lights

December 3, 2021 – January 2, 2022

During the daylight-deprived month of December, Rose Tree Park sparkles at night with its annual Festival of Lights display. Dozens of illuminated trees and lit displays draw visitors back every year to walk in the winter wonderland and linger in the festive atmosphere. A treasured Delco tradition for more than four decades, The Festival of Lights provides a perfect opportunity to get in the holiday spirit with friends and family or take a sweetheart stroll after dinner.

The 2021 Festival of Lights opens with a brief Tree Lighting Ceremony on Friday, December 3, at 5:00 PM. Displays are lit nightly from 5:00-10:00 PM through Sunday, January 2. Admission and parking are free. The pedestrian mall is handicapped accessible. Well-behaved canine companions on a leash are welcome.

This year The Festival of Lights will feature a Delco Vendor Village on the first three weekends: December 3, 4, 10, 11, 17 & 18. For details, please visit
