What you can find at Robbins Park:

The 38 acre park supports over 25 different programs and activities for environmental and outdoor education.
The park is open to the community during daylight hours, for trail hiking, picnicing, and plant and animal observation. Sorry no pets or dog walking.
The park offers 10 interpretive signs created by Sara Smith in 2009. Each sign displays environmental concepts, facts and messages. Read & teach others!
Come explore our forest, historic springhouse and manmade pond. Walk along the north branch of the Rose Valley Creek as it flows to the Wissahickon.
The park is also a drop off site for Abitibi paper recycling, drink pouches, and Frito Lay snack bags (to benefit FORP).

Educate

Courses are designed to supplement and enrich Upper Dublin classroom lessons and are aligned with PA Standards. Kindergarten through twelfth grades and community groups may explore the natural world around them through observation and hands-on experience. The park fosters integration of other subjects such as field research, photography, creative drawing, creative writing, history, social studies, and language.

At Robbins Park Environmental Education Center, educators sponsor special peer instruction by high school students in the Environmental Education Club (EEC) who mentor sixth and second graders. The sixth graders develop team building skills and participate in a comprehensive environmental education camp for two days at the park. Second graders receive a classroom lesson on butterfly life cycles from high school students. EEC hopes to help guide the elementary students with topics of sustainability.

Be Green

Robbins Park also boasts many sustainable practices. Come see rain barrels in use, passive and active solar power, composting, recycling, rain garden, teaching vegetable garden and meadow! The vegetable garden has been arranged by companion plantings, hoping to promote integrated pest management techniques.
