In 1995, Radnor Township purchased 15.8 acres known as the Forbes Tract through the Open Space Fund. The site was developed into multipurpose athletic fields for use by various sports programs. In May 1999, the park was named for Radnor Township’s first Director of the Parks & Recreation Department, who served the Township for over 17 years. Dittmar was instrumental in establishing and strengthening the sports programs of Radnor, who continue to make use of the playing fields on this site.
