     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​
