Warrington park to be named after NFL player, CB South’s Josh Adams

Before Josh Adams was a running back for the New York Jets, he spent his days at Willow Knoll Park in Warrington, practicing basketball and perfecting his football skills.

As a kid, Adams dreamed of playing football professionally, and the park provided a space for round-the-clock practice.

Now, the NFL player wants to give back to the park that helped build his career.

After being signed by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2018, Adams had the idea to revamp the park from a place that he remembered — tattered basketball nets, broken equipment and a football field with no goal lines — to a place that inspires children. Adams approached the township about renovating the park, and a few years later his vision is becoming a reality.

“I always wanted to do something back home, but I just didn’t know how to do it. I started to get into contact with the township and asked how could I actually make what was in my head come to life,” said Adams.

On Wednesday, Warrington officials and Adams held a groundbreaking ceremony at the newly named DocterAdams Community Park to announce its renovations. The re-imagined park, located on Oxford Road, will have new equipment that both children and adults can utilize for play and fitness, as well as a “Play 60” Challenge Course with a 40-yard-dash track, both of which will have built-in timing systems. Renovations are set to be complete by fall 2021.
