Since 2000, Eastampton Township has received $430,000 in grant monies for park renovation and improvements. A Recreation Committee subcommittee laid out a strategic plan to guide investments in Eastampton's existing active recreation municipal parks. The immediate needs of the Township were analyzed, and the plan identified the unique functional characteristics of each park so that future investments can highlight and build upon the strengths of each park. The Township Council, based upon Recreation Committee analysis and recommendation, continues to invest grant monies to improve each of our parks. Eastampton continues to develop a park system that adds to the quality of life in our community.
