Lititz Springs Park is a beautiful stretch of land in Lititz, Pennsylvania. It was owned and maintained by the Lititz Moravian Congregation for over 200 years. In 1956, the park was turned over to the community through a “Declaration of Trust.”
With a history dating back hundreds of years, Lititz Springs Park has long been a community treasure, used for celebration, entertainment and serenity.
When strolling through the Lititz Springs Park, be sure to stop by the Wescom Center/Train Station if it’s during their hours of operation. It’s also common for visitors to bring lunch for a casual picnic under one of the park’s pavilions. For parties and larger gatherings, the pavilions can be rented in advance.
The park also features playgrounds, a fireplace, a band shell, a volleyball court, a wall of remembrance and Memorial Square.
The park is always a great place to visit for a leisurely afternoon, but there are a few events throughout the year that are known to draw a crowd from near and far.
- Fourth of July Festivities
- Annual Fall Antique Show
- Annual Chocolate Walk
- Annual Christmas in the Park (including carol singing and Christmas tree lighting)
- Ice Festival in February
Beyond this, there are always many other organized events throughout the year, often sponsored by local businesses. The event schedule is always available at the Lititz Springs Park website.
Funding and Management
As a non-profit that isn’t funded through tax dollars, the park relies solely on the rental of park facilities and other donations.
The park’s volunteers are another vital part of its success. Similarly, the board of trustees, comprised of various church representatives and community members, manage park operations.
As with any park, there are rules that visitors are expected to abide by. Lititz Springs Park is open from dusk to dawn, and visitors should use the park at their own risk. All pets must be leashed and the annual 4th of July festival is a pet-free event. Smoking, alcoholic beverages, firearms and soliciting are all prohibited in the park. Visitors are also not allowed to wade in Lititz Run. The full list of regulations is available on the park website. They are also posted throughout the park.
The park is a short distance from our 48 on the Park project. The community is committed to the preservation of Lititz Springs Park, so it will no doubt remain a beautiful staple of Lititz for years to come.
