Parks and Recreation

The West Hanover Township Park and Recreation Board was formed by in 1991 by Ordinance 1991-6.  The purpose of the P&R Board is to advise the Board of Supervisors and Township Manager on ways to administer, maintain, develop and operate parks and recreation facilities in the Township; and to develop a program of services designed to meet the various leisure time interests of all Township citizens.

In 2000, the Board of Supervisors adopted the Township's first Comprehensive Park, Recreation and Open Space Plan for the Township.  Based on direct input from the community and technical studies of current and future needs for Township park and recreational facilities, the park plan outlines the Township's unique goals and objectives for park and recreation facilities and programs.  The park and recreation plan serves as the multi-year guide to the Park and Recreation Board and Township staff for park programs, facility improvements and other park related objectives.
