Storywalk at Exton Park

The Chester County Library installed a StoryWalk® in Exton Park in June 2017. The StoryWalk® is installed along a ½ mile paved walkway surrounding two playgrounds and a picnic area. The project consists of 20 reading stations, each featuring a page in a children’s storybook, which promotes health and literacy in young children by encouraging exercise and reading. The StoryWalk® will be updated three times a year.

The book currently featured is Ruby's Birds by Mya Thompson. What sort of birds do you see at Exton Park the day you explore with Ruby? Tag us with your finds!

The funding for this project was made possible by the Chester County Library Trust through a donation from the Pearl Foundation. The displays were installed by Voya Financial employees on their volunteer in-service day, in cooperation with the Chester County Library and the County’s Facilities & Parks Departments.

The StoryWalk® is in Exton Park, located at 132 Church Farm Lane, Exton, PA.
