Montgomery Park

Montgomery Park, the Township’s main park (and its oldest), is 100 acres of varied landscape on Harlingen Road. Here you can find lacrosse, softball, and soccer fields, basketball courts, a sand volleyball court, as well as Montgomery Township’s Arboretum of Native Flora, and over 2.25 miles of pathways.

Upper and lower park entrances on Harlingen Road passed Devon Rd. Playground, pathways, restroom, picnic/pavilion area (2), grills, fire pit, lighted basketball courts (2), lacrosse fields, softball fields, sand volleyball. Paved loop path and cross-country trails. 

It includes:

The Montgomery Veterans Memorial and the 9-11 Memorial
A short paved pathway away from the upper parking area.

The Montgomery Arboretum of Native Flora
A natural area that can be accessed from the lower parking lot where there is signage. This is a growing specimen collection of over 150 species of trees and shrubs, some quite rare, native east of the Mississippi.

The main pathways in Montgomery Park lead into a larger network that continues through the Mill Pond soccer complex and out to River Road via the Opie’s Mill Trail. One possible access to the trail begins at the intersection of Mill Pond Road and Dead Tree Run near the historic triple-arch Mill Pond Bridge. This path continues through the historic Campbell Farm to River Road.

From the trailhead at the Mill Pond to the end of the Opie’s Mill Trail is 6/10’s of a mile. Half the trail is asphalt and half is boardwalk. The trail meanders along the Pike Run floodplain which is bordered by a majestic Osage hedgerow. If you continue on to the yellow gravel path and walk all the way to River Road, the total one-way distance from Mill Pond is 1.4 miles. Along the farm trail to River Road, you may first encounter a horse and a donkey and then Campbell Farm’s ponies and horses near River Road.

Another access point, quite near River Road, is Summit Avenue off Dead Tree Run. Enter at the end of the street. Go to the left along the fence to River Road. Go right along the hedgerow then turn right to go the Opie’s Mill Pathway and Mill Pond Bridge.
