Mission Statement

The mission of the West Reading Recreation Commission is to provide excellence in the delivery of programs, events, and services. West Reading provides well-maintained park areas and recreational facilities for the use of our residents. These activities enrich the physical and social development of our children while maintaining a safe environment and meeting the recreation needs of the community by enhancing the lives of our residents.

The Borough's 23- acre park is for the use of West Reading residents and their guests. The park facilities include a stone pavilion, walking trails, tennis and basketball courts, baseball and softball fields, a gravel track, exercise equipment, and a community swimming pool with a volleyball court. The Recreation Department offers fun and safe activities for the residents of the Borough to enjoy. The Recreation Commission which meets regularly to plan events and projects is always looking for volunteers, so if you have the time come out and join us!

Throughout the year, the Recreation Department hosts a variety of activities including the Easter Egg Hunt, Christmas Tree Lighting, Haunted Hayride, and Community Moonlight Swims just to name a few. Every summer Borough children are invited to take part in the Playground Program that provides activities for children ages 5-12.
