What can I do at Plymouth Township Park for recreation?

Walking Paths: Barrier free walking paths are located throughout the park and provide access to all areas of the park. There are 3 different distances, short, medium and long. The long distance path is 9/10 of a mile.

Fishing dock and pond: Fishing in the pond is allowable and encouraged. Normal state fishing laws prevail. Youngsters under the age of sixteen may fish without a license. Please try to limit catch of trout and bass to two per fishing person or family. Remember, "Catch and Release" will help extend this important recreation resource. In the Spring of 2000, there will be a barrier free floating dock installed.

Playscape: The playscape offers hours of fun for children. It is divided into two areas, one for smaller children and the other for older children. As always, smaller children should be accompanied by an adult. The playscape offers swings, slides, bridges, chain ladders and is completely wheelchair accessible.

SprayScape: Celebrating its grand opening in May of 2003, the SprayScape water feature has become a very popular destination for many Township residents. Open to all ages, the SprayScape is a great place for you and your family to cool off during the hot summer months. The water feature is scheduled to open memorial weekend and remain open until the September 30th providing weather warrants operation. The SprayScape rules are posted at the park and available on this website on the SprayScape page.
