Created By: Mount Joy Borough
A gentleman name Clarence Schock gave the Little Chiques School Playground to the Mount Joy School Board in 1947. Mr. Clarence had just developed Park Avenue. It is said that no one actually called the park Little Chiques School Playground. Before that time, it was simply a corn field and to get to the area one walked through the field.
Little Chiques Park plaque announces that the bolder on which the plaque is located came from Governor Dick, Mount Gretna, which he also gave to the Mount Joy School Board. The School Board then gave it back at sometime and the SICO Company maintained this park. It was then named SICO Park. Finally in April 2002, Mount Joy Borough took over the park and a few years later the name was changed to Little Chiques Park.
Little Chiques Park is located on Park Avenue off of East Main Street of Mount Joy. This 32-acre park includes a tot lot and nine (9) pavilions. Most pavilions have ten (10) picnic tables. The pavilions do not have electric but they do have charcoal grills. Surrounding the park is a creek known as Little Chiques Creek.
