McSherrystown Borough Parks

McSherrystown Borough Parks

Parks & Recreation Program

Fellow residents, 
It is the goal of McSherrystown Borough to provide all our residents with a wide range of recreation options and venues. The facilities over the past few years have aged a good bit. The Borough of McSherrystown's Parks and Recreation committee has been working very hard to formulate a plan to rejuvenate and improve the safety of these facilities in a coordinated effort of commercial contractors and volunteers to bring them back to life while doing so by way of donations. We hope you'll join us in this effort and check back here for opportunities for you to pitch in. 
God Bless;
Councilwoman Joyce Murren, Chairperson
