The Hopewell Township Parks & Recreation Department provides a comprehensive array of recreation and leisure services for the entire Hopewell Valley community. 

Now in our 15th year, we are pleased to continue our service to the residents of Hopewell Township and our neighboring municipalities of Pennington Borough and Hopewell Borough with quality programs and events.

The success of the Hopewell Township Parks & Recreation Department is due in large part to the support and participation we receive from the Hopewell Valley community.  We pride ourselves in offering relevant programs that are enjoyed by our teens, families and seniors and look forward to providing great recreation opportunities.

The department publishes two annual seasonal brochures that are mailed to every resident. The current Fall/Winter 2015-16 Program Guide details a wide variety of community trips, senior citizens programs, and youth & teen activities.  Once again, you are invited to join the Recreation Department and travel to many outstanding destinations throughout the year.  In the spring of 2016, an overnight trip for adults is planned that will take you to the towns of Hyannis and Provincetown on Cape Cod along with an exciting excursion to the island of Nantucket as well.
