About the Commission

In addition, the Recreation Commission supervises the public parks, playfields, and all outdoor and indoor recreation areas and facilities. The Commission  establishes, plans, and coordinates recreation programs within the community, and works cooperatively with the Recreation Director.

The Commission periodically reviews recreation programs and assess recreation facilities within the Borough to determine additional needs, and submits recommendations pertaining to recreation programs, facilities, guidelines, policies, or user fees to the Borough Council.
