About The Burlington Park

Burlington Park, located on Highway 22 at the eastern edge of Burlington  in southeastern Carroll County, is a thirty-acre, modern park with numerous facilities.  It includes new playground equipment, the Lilly Building, the Community Building, three lighted ball diamonds with bleachers as well as basketball and tennis courts, horseshoe pits, paved walking trail, and a wooded nature area.

Two picnic shelters with tables, park benches, and a large playground are also available along with restrooms.  A large community building is also available for public meetings and for rent for private parties.

The Burlington Community Club has been instrumental in the evolution of this park since 1974 when the town and township bought the first tract of land.  The Park is jointly owned by the town and township and is governed by a Park Board of representatives from each entity.  The Burlington Kiwanis have helped with the provision of picnic tables and playground equipment.
