About Us

Karen Whitney, Director

The Township’s Recreation Services Division provides numerous year-round special events and community services. The Township also oversees and maintains 420 acres of active and passive recreation areas in 13 parks. Warminster Community Park is our largest, 240 acres, with over 5 miles of trails. Many of our other parks are pocket parks located in neighborhoods. Sport organizations such as soccer, football, basketball, swimming, wrestling, baseball, and softball are offered by various adult and youth sport organizations throughout the seasons.

Starting in January 2015, Warminster Township has partnered with the Central Bucks Family YMCA to provide the day-to-day programs that many residents have enjoyed through the Parks & Recreation Department. Many of our instructors have transitioned to the Y to provide the same quality activities that residents have come to expect. Many of the programs continue to be held at the WREC @ Warminster Community Park (WCP), 1100 Veterans Way.

With the changes to our programming initiatives, the Parks & Recreation Department is revamping our website and online registration software. Until this is complete, registration for any special event can be done over the phone by calling 215-443-5428.

parkandrecMemorial Bench & Memorial Tree Programs

Warminster Parks & Recreation recognizes the value of commemorating life experience. In response to many resident requests, the Township is proud to announce the addition of a memorial bench program to our memorial tree program. Throughout our community parks, newly planted trees and benches made from recycled plastics are being installed to provide comfort to park visitors to enjoy not only the shade but various views of our parks.  Click here to download the memorial tree form.

Today, many people buy a memorial gift of a bench to honor the memory of a lost relative, pet or fallen soldier or to celebrate a joyous occasion, accomplishment, family milestone or new addition. Often they are placed in a park where relatives and friends can visit. If you enjoy a particular park and wish to place a lasting memorial, consider donating a bench or tree to the community. Click here to download the memorial bench form.
