The Borough of North East maintains three parks inside the Borough limits and jointly operates one park at Freeport Beach with North East Township. The center piece is Gibson Park right in the middle of town, at the intersection of Lake and Main Streets, with several planned activities throughout the year for all ages. Everyone is welcome to come and sit under the canopy of trees, which shade the park in the summer, or play in the snow blanketing it in the winter.
For high density events such as the Annual North East Firemen’s Cherry Festival where large venues gather, we have Heard Memorial Park at 40 North Lake Street near Gibson Park. This park boasts a playground for young children, a full concession stand and stage for plays and music plus a large restroom facility for all events.
Tucked away on the banks of Sixteen Mile Creek on the south side of town off of Wellington Street is Creekside Park, which is undeveloped but groomed. It has picnic tables and shade for just getting away for an afternoon without interruption of traffic or the phone.
