York Township Park System

York Township maintains nine (9) municipal parks. The centerpiece of our recreational facilities is  York Township Park, located on Oak Street about a half a block from South Queen Street. This park is home to Kid’s Kingdom, our largest playground that was renovated in 2013 with safety tile surfacing for easy accessibility to the site.  York Township Park also has the Park Building (a community room available for rent–see below), a walking trail, 2 other playgrounds, 3 pavilions, and more!

The York Township Public Works Department provides maintenance for the parks and fields.  A Certified Playground Safety Inspector (CPSI) is on staff and performs regular inspections of all of the Township’s playgrounds.
