Lancaster Parks

Located between Lincoln and Cherry Streets on the east side of the City, immediately to the north of the Lancaster Golf Course, Memorial Park is Lancaster’s most used recreation area. It contains an excellent variety of recreational facilities and support facilities, including a swimming pool, 74 picnic tables, 7 picnic shelters (3 may be reserved), a good selection of playground apparatus, interior park roads, two softball diamonds with fencing and lights, bleachers, drinking water, and a basketball court. A pond with a handicapped-accessible pier provides a place for people to fish in the summer. The park also has two volleyball courts and a sledding hill. Four restroom buildings are also located at different locations throughout Memorial Park. 
A truly unique and one of a kind Lancaster Area Veteran's Memorial includes twelve granite tablets with the names of all Lancaster Area Veterans and at the top of the tablets the entire "Pledge of Allegiance" is displayed in phrases. Two soldier sculptures stand as sentinels at each end of the walkway.

There is also a restroom building located on the premises, but it is not handicapped accessible.
