Calendar and Notices


This survey is part of a joint municipal project between the Borough of Edinboro and Washington Township to develop a comprehensive parks and recreation plan for the Edinboro area. This brief survey asks you to provide your opinions on current parks and recreation amenities, sites, and facilities, while also asking you to indicate what parks and recreation improvements and investments you’d like to see implemented in the future. Washington Township highly encourages you to take this survey and to share it with anyone you know who has a vested interest in the Edinboro community, including anyone who lives in, works in, goes to school at, or visits the greater Edinboro area.
