Welcome to the home of the Egypt Memorial Park Cobras
Since it opened in 1947, the Egypt Memorial Park has been an important part of our community. People of all ages have fond memories of their time at the park. We are embarking on our 67th year of baseball. It’s amazing that it all started with a game between the Philadelphia Phillies and Egypt of the old Twilight League. You can come down and enjoy games played by 5 year olds, just learning to play T-ball, all the way up to 40 year olds playing for the Orioles of the Blue Mountain League.
Many people don’t realize that we are a privately-owned park. We’ve been operated by countless volunteers over the years. Please get involved. We always need help to run the various activities and to serve on the committees that plan for the future and help raise funds. New ideas and talents are needed and very much appreciated!
Our next major event is the Egypt Memorial Park Festival on June 1st. Please come out and enjoy the parade, music, food, fun and games! A good time is guaranteed. The parade will again have a strong baseball presence, with all of our teams marching. Look for Curt Simmons in the red convertible.
We are currently working on several important upgrades to the park. Plans are in the works to replace the black top inside the pavilion with a concrete floor. This, along with the addition of new restrooms, a heater and a sound system, will enable the pavilion to be used during the winter months. We are also working towards building another field on the west side of the park.
In closing, I would like to thank all of the individuals, businesses and past board members that contribute their time, money and resources to make the park great. I especially thank our previous president, Dexter Knauss. He truly loves the park and does so many behind-the-scene things.
