Parks & Recreation Commission

Staff Liaison:  Pam Packard


The Parks & Recreation (P&R) Commission consists of seven residents, appointed by the Board of Supervisors. Their mission is to plan and manage activities and events in Westtown Township parks for the benefit of Township residents and the surrounding community, and to make recommendations to the Board of Supervisors for improving the use and operation of Township parks and open spaces.  P&R meets at 7:00 PM at the Oakbourne Mansion on the third Tuesday of each month.  All Township meetings are open to the public.

If you would like to help plan and run programs and events at Oakbourne Park, then consider joining the Parks & Recreation Commission. Interested residents should submit their resume and brief letter of interest to Township Manager Jon Altshul. Applicants must be current in all municipal obligations.


Recreation Program Survey 

Westtown is in the early stages of expanding its recreation programming, and we would like to thank everyone who took a few minutes to provide their input about Township-sponsored activities. Survey results indicate a desire for both adult and youth programming, and we hope to expand our offerings in the near future!


Upcoming Events

Egg Hike – March 23, 2024, 10 AM to noon

Meet at the pavilion to pick up a map to the treat stations and hit the trails at Oakbourne Park.  Along the way, watch for golden eggs, which can be traded in for an extra treat! Park trails are gravel or mulch. Wear appropriate footwear and dress for the weather.  Event will be cancelled if there is steady rain.

**This event is for residents of Westtown Township. Parking capacity is 90 cars. You may invite extended family, but you must carpool.**

Registration will be required. Link will be posted several weeks before the event.

We need volunteers to man the treat stations along the trail. Email parkrec@westtown.org for details.

PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST

We received some great entries for the amateur photography contest! The winning photo of sunset at Crebilly Farm was taken by Mason Esterly (age 11).  Mason’s winning photo is on display in the meeting hall of the Township Building and will be featured in the winter issue of the Westtown Gazette.

Mason (2nd from right) is pictured below with his father Dan, sister Kaitlyn, friend Allie McNamee, and mom Kelly at Westtown Day, where he received a $250 gift card for his winning entry.  Mason intends to use the money towards the purchase of a new lens for his camera.
