Allentown Park Log 17: Jordan Meadows

Jordan Meadows is one of the newest parks in the Allentown park system. Original construction took place in the late seventies and renovations were done in the nineties. Jordan Meadows is primarily a recreation destination with basketball courts, a racquet ball court and a roller hockey rink:

There is a really cool WWII memorial here:

Central Catholic High School uses the back end of Jordan Meadows for football practice:

Alongside the Jordan Creek there are a few access trails that seem to have been created by people using the creek for a swim:

CCHS’ environmental club had many projects down here and I tried to get in touch with Mr. Thomas Shive to discuss whatever work took place here but my attempts have been unsuccessful. Jordan Meadows is a clean, usable park and is a very nice urban addition to our park system. There is talk of connecting Jordan Meadows to Jordan Park with a new trail. It would be great to see that. A nice long urban hike would be pretty awesome. Expect a part 2 if I ever hear from Mr. Shive.
