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.

OWL PROWL – January 14
Local naturalist Lon Meyers provided a talk on local species and called a variety of owls. Although we did not see any of these elusive creatures, we learned a lot!

Thanks to Agway Wild Birding Center for sponsoring this event, and to all the volunteers who helped make this event a success. Over 80 families walked the trails at Oakbourne to find egg stations along the way, took photos with the Easter Bunny, and searched for golden eggs!
