smedley parkSmedley Park is located off of Baltimore Pike and the Blue Route (Route 476) and borders the Springfield Country Club.  If you look at a map of Delaware County, you can see that a large portion of the park is in Nether Providence Township and a smaller portion is in Springfield Township.  Smedley Park does have the sound of the Blue Route in the background but it offers a contrast to that sound with the green space, trails and Crum Creek that runs through it.

To get to the park by car from the Springfield Mall
, head west down the hill on Baltimore Pike and make a right on Paper Mill Road.  If you get to the Blue Route you have gone too far.  There is a large Memorial at the entrance of the Park. There is a parking lot close to the entrance where most people venture. 

If you continue on Paper Mill Road you will cross the trolley tracks.  There is a trolley stop just off the road, the Paper Mill Road stop on the 101 Septa Trolley line.  This is another way to get to the park.

Smedley ParkJust beyond the trolley stop is a play area with swings and slides and places to sit and relax.

If you continue further down the road you will go under the Blue Route and come to the end of Paper Mill Road where there is parking along Crum Creek.  On the other side of Crum Creek at this point is another playground complete with park equipment, a ballpark, restrooms and walking trails.

At this end of Paper Mill Road, I was told by a local history buff that a paper mill was located where the parking lot now stands, thus the name “Paper Mill Road”.  If you walk around the creek off this parking lot you can see the ruins of a structure that was part of the paper mill. 

Smedley Park is a place to get away from it all and a place to be reminded of the rich history we have in Delaware County Pennsylvania.
