The Township’s Recreation Services Division provides numerous year-round special events and community services. With the changes to our programming initiatives in 2015, the Parks & Recreation Department has begun rebuilding many of our educational programs and creating new activities. Due to the limited size our building, we have partnered with many local facilities to outsource some of our programs. While many are free, all programs and special events require registration. Feel free to call the office at 215-443-5428 or use the online registration: www.warminstertownship.org/specialevents if you need more information.
The Department also oversees and maintains 420 acres of active and passive recreation areas in 13 parks. Warminster Community Park is the largest, 240 acres, with over 5 miles of trails. Many of our other parks are pocket parks located in neighborhoods. We encourage residents to take time to enjoy nature use this website to find local parks: https://goodforpa.com. Sport organizations such as soccer, football, basketball, swimming, wrestling, kickball, baseball, and softball are offered by various adult and youth sport organizations throughout the seasons.
WARMINSTER GRANT IMPROVEMENTS NEAR COMPLETION
After several years of planning and a year of work, Warminster Township is happy to announce that the construction work at Warminster Community Park is complete. WCP is now home to a championship soccer field, two youth baseball/softball fields; a new pavilion with rest rooms; new play apparatus; new basketball courts, including a Bankshot basketball system, which allows all abilities to participate; expanded parking; new and expanded trails and new fencing along Bristol and Newtown Roads. WCP is now accessible from Veterans Way and Bristol Road.
With assistance from local legislators, developers, sport & civic organizations and individuals, the Township was able to acquire over $3M in grant funds and donations to bring this project to fruition. We would like to thank all that made this project possible and the Warminster community for your patience throughout the construction process. We hope that everyone enjoys the improvements that have been completed.
For our events to be successful, we are seeking volunteers who wish to assist. No worries about the time commitment – it can be as little as a half hour to multiple hours and on a flexible schedule. Let us know if you are interested by contacting the Parks & Rec office at 215-443-5428. Please be aware that background checks may be required when working with children.
