Park 27 offers many ways to enjoy outdoor activities. The park has a baseball diamond, basketball court, volleyball area, horseshoe pits, hiking trails for skiing, snowshoeing and biking, as well as playground equipment and a pavilion.

Township officials are pleased that they can create a complete community recreation area for all to enjoy. Without grant funding from RCCF, “it would be extremely difficult to provide these amenities to parents, children, seniors, those with disabilities, and players.”
