Parks and Recreation is a department of the Township government structure. It operates as a function of a cooperative agreement between the Township and the School District. The Township provides staff, equipment and parks, while the School District provides space for an office, classes and the pool.
In addition to the management and maintenance of these facilities, the Township provides leisure programs and services such as aquatics programs, arts and crafts, adult leisure learning classes, concerts in the park, special events, bus trips, pavilion rentals, and more. You can register online at for any classes.
The Parks and Recreation Board was established in 1973 to provide guidance on matters relating to parks and recreation facilities provided by the Township. The Board consists of seven members, all appointed by the Board of Supervisors for five year terms.
The members serve without pay. Parks and Recreation Board meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month at 6 p.m., except December, and are held at the South Middleton Township Municipal Building, 520 Park Drive, Boiling Springs.
