Prior to 2013, Tanner Park only featured the little league field and was mostly all open space. John Farnen, a member of Elm Street Hatboro, saw a need for a revitalization of the park and spent roughly 6 years putting together a plan to build Tanner Park the way it is today. Mr. Farnen and Elm Street Hatboro, a philanthropic non-profit organization that aims to assist in the redevelopment of Hatboro, was able to raise $48,000 from local business donations and through engraved pavers that would eventually be used on the path into the park from Springdale Avenue. The Hatboro Authority donated $60,000 to the project. George K Porter Jr, who was a friend of Mr. Farnen and who grew up in Hatboro along with his wife Patricia Null Porter, also contributed a $200,000 donation that put the project in motion. Former Hatboro Mayor and current State Representative, Nancy Guenst, was also an integral park of the project. Representative Guenst was the treasurer of Elm Street Hatboro at the time and donated the pavers that were engraved for the walkway fundraising project. The playground itself was designed by Mr. Farnen’s daughter-in-law Cathy, a professional landscape architect. In early 2013 construction began on the playground and on May 5th of that year a large grand opening was held by Elm Street Hatboro and the Hatboro-Horsham Kiwanis Club.

Celano Park, located in the northeast end of Hatboro, is an abundant greenspace that is accessible from the intersections of Meadowbrook and Windsor Avenues next to Crooked Billet Elementary as well as Overbrook Ave in the Mitchell Park section of Hatboro. Celano Park sits atop ground that was once occupied by 24 condominiums on Drummers Way. Due to continuous devastating flooding of these homes, all the homes were purchased by the Borough with the assistance of the FEMA/PEMA Flood Hazard Mitigation Grant. This was done to alleviate the danger to residents in the area due to the proximity to the floodplain. Upon demolition of the area the area that then became Celano Park was returned to a natural wetland area.
In Celano Park a tributary of the Pennypack Creek runs right through the middle of the park and boasts one of the most tranquil and beautiful views here in Hatboro. Due to the stipulations of the grant that was used to purchase the property and the fact that it still is an active floodplain, the area can only be used as passive recreation space. Passive recreation activities include picnicking, walking, bird watching, and photographing nature. When visiting Celano Park you will be greeted with views of the tree-lined creek and lovely landscape, and sometimes you can even catch a raft of ducks peacefully floating along the water. Celano Park was also the first property owned by the Borough to become a Certified Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation. A Certified Wildlife Habitat is an area that is dedicated to sustainable practices and meets the requirements of having food, water, shelter, and places that animals can raise their young. The west side of the creek in the park has a paved trail along the water. There is also a footbridge at the north end of the park to cross the creek and a trail to access the new Crooked Billet Elementary School. Celano Park was named after longtime Hatboro Mayor Joseph Celano and his wife Arlene. The Celano’s opened the Hatboro Music Shop at 11 S. York Rd in 1945 and they operated the store until 2002. Joseph was elected to his first term as the mayor of Hatboro in 1981 and would go on to serve for 24 years! Mayor Celano also married over 2,000 couples during his long tenure. “Mayor Joe” and Arlene were staples in the community for many years and when a vote was taken to name the park after someone, the Celano’s were a clear winner. Their legacy lives on at the park and will continue to do so for years to come!
