Tanner Park

Tanner Park Community catharine ann farnen landscape architecting overview


This pocket park community playground is located in Hatboro, Pennsylvania. Two community meetings were held to get ideas and feedback for the proposed park, including a playground, t-ball field, basketball courts, a walking trail, picnic tables and benches. The neighboring theater is a community playhouse. Picking up on this theme, the playground has a stage and a car for a ‘drive in’ theatre. Designed for all ages, this park is well used and helps to build up the community in meaningful ways. From moms pushing their kids in a stroller, to teens playing pick up on the courts, there’s always a need for outdoor recreation in local neighborhoods.

The landscape creates structure and defines areas for active and passive recreation. Perennials, grasses, trees and shrubs give the park a natural setting where kids can explore their environment. Elm Street Hatboro headed up the plan for constructing a lighted, paved, walkway leading from Springdale Avenue into Tanner Park linking Village Players Theatre. Bricks were engraved to raise money and awareness of the need for park improvements for a safe place to play.
