In February 2013 the Township adopted a park development plan that includes a lot of cool things such as improving barrier-free accessibility, building additional pathways and pavilions, developing an outdoor gym, making improvements to the ball field, and constructing a dog park. Keep an eye out for ongoing improvements!
