PARKSIDE, DELAWARE COUNTY, PA
Borough Motto "Small But Strong!"
For those of you who do not know of Parkside, welcome to this little Borough hidden inside the Brookhaven zip code 19015. I did not become aware of this little community until I got involved in real estate and then low and behold I started to hear about people who grew up in Parkside and still have relatives living there....You know how that works.
Parkside, I imagine was named for the fact that it sits very close to Chester Park (please correct me if I am wrong). There is another stretch of park area that can be accessed off of Park Vallei Road. A trail through the woods from that area will take you to Ridley Creek.
The Parkside Elementary School was opened in the early part of this century and the old school was torn down giving the community a green space for the school children and for our eyes to enjoy.
Within the Borough's limits you will find a firehouse, a dance studio, a donut shop, a few good eateries, a few car repair shops, a few hair salons, a barber shop, a dry cleaner/alteration shop and a few more businesses along with all the 800+ houses.
