Mission Statement

The Lancaster County Department of Parks and Recreation is committed to improving the well being of County residents by providing facilities and programs that encourage participation in outdoor activities and foster personal action for the conservation of natural resources. 

 With six region parks and three recreational trails, the department manages a total of 2,055 acres. Regional parks range in level of development from Central Park's more urban setting to the Theodore Parker Natural Area's rural setting in the woodlands along Stewart Run in the southeastern part of the county.  All county parks and services are also open to non-residents.
