Franklin Township's Parks & Recreation


The Franklin Township Advisory Recreation & Parks Board was created in 2004. The Board is made up of five township residents appointed by the Board of Supervisors. This Board was formed to advise the Board of Supervisors of any problems that may occur at the recreational areas that are located in Franklin Township and to enforce Ordinance 2004-03 which states the rules and regulations of the recreational facilities owned by the Township. The Advisory Recreation & Park Board meets on an as needed basis.
