Martha Burton Community Park

This half-acre pocket park at Ronaldson and Allen Streets in South Media was officially established in 1979 as a memorial for those who served in World War I. The tract was originally presented to the township in 1929 by prominent attorney and township resident A. B. Geary and his family. It offers playground equipment.

Mrs. Burton, who has lived in South Media her entire life, established and ran (in the late 60s and early 70s) a Community House On The Corner Of Wallingford Ave and Vernon St known as the South Media Community Center.   She helped with the creation of youth summer jobs and organized activities for teenagers in the community, including a pool for the community.  The center also became the the home of the South Media Boy Scout Troop.  Her guidance and leadership helped countless young teens in the community – instilling hard work and dedication that extends into generations. The park was renamed in 2020 in honor of her service to the community.
