Formally called the Edward C. Henle Park, this popular community park in Leetsdale is named for a former town mayer.
Leetsdale is a small town northwest of Pittsburgh with a population of about 1,200 people that at one time had a formidable industrial manufacturing base until the Bethelehem Steel mill closed in the late 1970s.
The park was once part of the estate of the Atwoods, a prominent Leetsdale family. The property changed hands several times over the years and now belongs to the town. The Atwood family left a legacy of natural beauty for future generations to appreciate and enjoy. The result is a park filled with arboretum quality trees. Some of those trees, planted after the Civil War, provide a welcoming, shady setting for family picnics, events or just a lovely place to sit and enjoy the natural surroundings.
Henle Park is fully handicap-accessible with a picnic area, pavilion and gazebo.
Daily, dawn to dusk.
On-street parking is available.
