Parks and Recreation

The Parks and Recreation Board is comprised of nine members who make recommendations on all park related issues, including improvements, equipment and the scheduling of activities in Township parks. If you would like to reserve the pavilions located in Arnold Park or the Allison Parkette, please contact the Township office.

The Parks Committee undertook a Parks, Recreation and Open Space Plan study in 2015, meeting with user groups and the community.   It was formally adopted by the Board of Supervisors in July of 2016.  This plan looks at the Township's Recreational Facilities, programs, needs and opportunities.  Please take time to read the entire Parks Recreation and Open Space Plan or the Executive Summary
