A Guilford Township Recreational Facility
Today Norlo Park offers our community a gathering place, and holds tremendous potential for the future. Thanks to more than a decade of effort, Norlo Park offers beautiful natural areas, vast open spaces, and rich historic heritage. Our goal is to contribute to and promote healthy lifestyles in our community through the development and enhancement of Norlo Park's recreational facilities, programs and activities. Norlo Park Foundation, with the help of our supporters, will create a sustainable and lasting facility.
There is a dog park, 5 softball fields, 3 soccer fields, 2 pavilions with onsite grills, playground area, over 3 miles of paved walking trails, horseshoe pits and tot lots. The park also offers 2 sand volleyball courts, 2 basketball courts, and 4 tennis courts. The original Quincy railroad station was relocated to Norlo Park, and there is a train for children and adults to enjoy a train ride, manned by members of the Cumberland Valley Railway Historical Society. A passive display of two cabooses, a flat car, and a wooden tank car are also on site.
The 143 acre 1880's historic farm that now is the home of Norlo Park offers the Chambersburg area community a place to gather for sports, recreation, events, businesses, and education. The Barn, built in 1881, hosts events such as group gatherings, parties, dances and weddings. The Farmhouse, circa 1885, is the home of non-profit offices namely the Conococheague Audubon Society, Falling Spring Chapter- Trout Unlimited, Falling Spring Greenway, Inc., and the PA Forest Fire Museum Association. The Community Center, shown above, is available for events, has a commercial kitchen and will provide for 150 guests. Facilities are available for rent.
