The Recreation Board is an advisory body to the Board of Supervisors and the Planning Commission in matters regarding development of all recreational areas within the Township. The Recreational Board reviews all applications for subdivision and land development and gives their recommendations to the Planning Commission and the Board of Supervisors regarding open space issues and recreational areas.

The goal of this committee is to preserve as much open space as possible, in order to provide appealing parks and recreational areas for the residents of the community. The Recreation Board is a five-member Board appointed by the Board of Supervisors. Members of this committee serve staggered five (5) year terms.

As most of you know, Bethel Township formed a Recreation Board several years ago to acquire and develop land for recreational use.  The income the Board receives is a fee from land development within the Township, both residential and commercial.


The Recreation Board is in the process of applying for a matching grant to make additional improvements to the Frystown Playground.

They include a new or updated pavilion, bathroom facilities, walking trail around the area and parking lot.

Any additional money donated would be put towards these extra items or as the Board determines.

Please make checks payable to “Bethel Township” with Recreation Board and what donation is to be applied to on the Memo line.  Drop off or mail to the Township at 60 Klahr Rd., Bethel, PA  19507.  “Thank you” in advance for your generosity!!!
