The Doylestown Township Board of Supervisors are excited to announce plans for the Township’s Community and Recreation Center, which will also include the transformation of Field 1 in Central Park into tennis, basketball, and pickle ball courts. The Community and Recreation Center will be situated next to the Township Building where the current tennis and basketball courts are located. Currently, the Township has no indoor public recreation facility. This new facility will include a gym, three multi-purpose rooms, and a large patio that overlooks Central Park.
The Township also recently received notification that we were awarded a grant from the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) for $1 million for the construction of the Community Recreation Center. We are thankful to our State Senator Steve Santarsiero and State Representative Shelby Labs for their assistance in obtaining this funding. The RACP is an extremely competitive grant program and we are very fortunate to receive this funding for this project.

Supervisor Nancy Santacecilia wanted to note that she does not believe her statements that are in the appendix of the feasibility study accurately reflect her comments.
Stay tuned for more information soon as we move forward on the construction of the Community and Recreation Center!
