Parks and Recreation
Hatfield Borough has 5 parks located within easy walking distance of almost any neighborhood.
Centennial Park is a three-acre park located along Cherry Street. The park has been the focal point of many special occasions. Centennial Park is a cooperative project between Hatfield Borough and the Montgomery County Open Space Program to permanently preserve the ground as public open space and dedicated on June 27, 1998 on the 100th Anniversary of the Incorporation of Hatfield Borough. As you cross over the wooden bridge welcoming you into the focal point of park you will be greeted by a lighted gazebo surrounded by a landscaped garden, tree lined stone walking path and old fashioned lighted lampposts. You can enjoy a quiet picnic under the oak tree and walk to the monument that marks where a time capsule was buried on April 17, 1999 to be opened June 2048.

The ten acres park area has been permanently set aside for open space and public enjoyment. A paved walking path winds past the spring fed pond, overlooking natural wooded areas, meadows and a tot lot.
