MASTER PLAN

The Parks and Recreation department, along with Mackin Engineering, is working to create two new parks in the Township.

Each site, one on Walden Court and one on State Route 136, offers unique opportunities and are ideally located to serve the community. Both projects are undergoing an extensive planning process, which includes seeking your input.

Please join us at the upcoming public meetings to review the initial concept ideas for each park. Additional information will be available on our Facebook page, and here on the Township’s website as the plan develops.

Join us in this exciting process as we bring new recreational opportunities to Hempfield Township!
