Collingswood Announces "Plan to Play" Recreation Program and Facilities Assessment

The borough of Collingswood, in collaboration with the Collingswood School District and community stakeholders, is soliciting the public's input for the development of a comprehensive Community Recreation and Facilities Master Plan. The community-driven planning process will include identifying and analyzing existing programs through surveying, public outreach activities, and an analysis of current facilities, programs, and recreation trends - including best practices in similarly sized communities. 

The goal is to work with the community and stakeholders to identify gaps in service or facilities and to develop a vision and plan for meeting current and future needs to serve residents of all ages and abilities in an equitable manner. Once completed, the plan and needs assessment will be used to help identify funding and guide the Borough Commission, School Board, stakeholders, and staff on programmatic needs and facility utilization and upgrades for recreational programs and facilities in town. 

The study will kick off on Thursday, April 20 with an interactive Community Open House from 6:30pm-8:30pm at the Collingswood Senior Community Center (30 W Collings Ave, Collingswood). Resident input is welcomed and encouraged  - this is an opportunity to be a part of the planning for recreation programs and facilities in our community. 

If you can't attend on the 20th, follow our page for updates on future events and to take the survey for the plan.
