Parks & Recreation

The Parks
Penn Township is pleased to have three community parks located at Cedar Hollow, Sweetbriar Creek, and Barons Ridge / Mallard Ponds.

In 2013, 153 trees were planted in the two larger parks: Cedar Hollow and Sweetbriar Creek. Providing ample active and passive recreation space is important for a well-rounded community, and the township's goal is to continue to maintain and improve them over time. Any comments or suggestions on how to do this better are always welcome.
