Upland County Park

 Home / Departments / Parks & Recreation / Upland County Park

Formerly called Camp Upland, this parcel of parkland was once owned by the Salvation Army and used for twenty-five years as a summer day camp for underprivileged youngsters. It was purchased by Delaware County in 1968.

With over sixty scenic acres, the park offers a great variety of activities such as a playground, wooded picnic groves, softball fields, and acres of woodland areas for leisurely relaxation or nature walks.

Redwood Community Center

Upland Park is the home of the Redwood Community Center, a county-operated facility which provides free activities each week for hundreds of local seniors. The Redwood offers a variety of entertaining programs, including senior social dances, country line dancing, Wii bowling, weekly exercise classes and more. Programs are held year-round, and monthly schedules are available on this page, at the Redwood Center, and from the Parks & Recreation Department. Ample free parking is available.
