Smile! Surveillance cameras are now in use at Irwin Park! Video recording began April 30. The super zoom cameras can capture images from anywhere in the park and beyond day or night. At this time the cameras are only recording, but very soon they will also be streaming live to the police cruisers. Special thanks to: HC Global and Lucien Bove for their monetary donations, and Jim Halfhill and the crew for making it happen.
Irwin Park Amphitheater was constructed in 1985 through a cooperative arrangement with the Architectural Department of Carnegie Mellon University. The students designed and built the building and the Borough covered the cost of the materials. Irwin holds outdoor concerts at the Amphitheater each year featuring local musical groups. Seating is on blankets or lawn chairs and there is never a charge. Collections are taken during the concerts to help cover costs.
Little Knights Kingdom was built through the efforts and donations of the entire Norwin Community. Dedicated in 1994 the wooden structure was designed by Leathers Architects and built on land at the western side of Irwin Park. Crossing the small wooden bridge you climb the gradual path, bringing you into the large play area easily accessible to the handicapped.
Penglyn Field was donated to the Borough by Norwin School District to help serve the recreational needs of Irwin residents. The park is located off Ash Street and features a tennis court, basketball court, baseball fields and play equipment.
