The Penn Forest Recreational Park provides the community with many opportunities for groups and individuals to participate in physical activity, for families and the community to gather and socialize, or for some just a simple respite. Penn Forest Recreational Park is both a sports center and a recreational area for the residents of the area. The Park Advisory Board sponsors a variety of activities including youth soccer, Little League, Babe Ruth and Connie Mack baseball as well as other activities.
Meetings of the Park Advisory Board are held at the Township Building on the THIRD Monday of the month beginning at 6:30pm. The public is invited is encouraged to attend.
Hours of Operation - Weather permitting, the Park is open from Sunrise until Sunset. Organized sports activities may be scheduled from 8:00am until dusk every day except Sundays. The Park Board discourages competitions, games and tournaments on Sunday and encourages family oriented activities.
Facility Scheduling is accomplished by first submitting a Scheduling Request to the Board via hard copy delivered to the Township Office or electronically by email. The Board will review the request and contact the sponsor of the activity to coordinate the formalization of the request. A Scheduling Request Form is located in the Forms Tab of the Township Website and in the Forms Tab located at this Tab.
