Thanks to a grant from Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and support from Friends of Warminster Parks and Renk Electric, the Township is getting their first Electrical Charging Station at Warminster Community Park! Public Works crew has begun prepping the foundation for the new addition. We hope to be accepting paid customers by November of 2019.
You see them. You hear about them. Now learn about them.

There are lots of opportunities to volunteer for community events and activities. Here are just a few…
- SPECIAL EVENT ASSISTANCE NEEDED

- ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION
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.
ROW, ROW, ROW YOUR BOAT!
Parks & Recreation is seeking the donation of a jon boat, row boat, dingy, Boston whaler or similar flat bottom boat in good condition (7-14 feet long, with or without trailer), so that we may work safely in our park ponds. This donation is tax deductible.

Memorial 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.

Warminster Parks & Recreation recognizes the importance of recreation for everyone. Many of our facilities are barrier free. We will, to the best of our ability, adapt our parks, trips, and special events to make them accessible to persons with special needs. We invite physically challenged persons to let us know what kinds of adaptations we can make so that as many people as possible can enjoy quality leisure services.
