East Petersburg takes pride in its extensive park system, with bike paths that connect one park area to another. You will find basketball courts, tennis courts, playgrounds, and ball fields throughout the community. There is a summer children’s program at the East Petersburg Community Park, where there is an open pavilion and community center (with a kitchen), available for gatherings and meetings. There is also a community swimming pool with a playground on Graystone Road.
All major conveniences can be realized without having to venture far. A highlight near the borough is Roots Market located on Graystone Road just off Route 72 (the major artery passing through the center of town). The market sells produce, baked goods, arts & crafts and other various items, and is open Tuesdays, year-round from 9am to 9pm. Like all markets in Lancaster county, PA, it attracts tourists and locals.
