History of the Name

On August 20, 1996, the Board of Supervisors named the Willard H. Markey Centennial Park after Willard Markey in honor of his dedication and service to the township and the various boards on which he served. He was a charter member of the Park and Recreation Board and Planning Commission and served on the Pennridge Wastewater Treatment Authority as the township's representative for a number of years.

 

Sand Trap Updated

Hoping to give golfers a fuller practice experience, the sand trap was updated in August 2013. Users are expected to display golf etiquette by raking the sand trap when they finished.
