Recognition Given to Park Board


Zelienople Borough Gives Recognition to the Zelienople Community Park Board

Zelienople Council wishes to recognize the members of the Zelienople Community Park Board for their efforts in making the Community Park a recreation gem for Zelienople and the region, as well as making the transfer to borough management seamless transition. 

To improve our Parks and Recreation delivery of services to our citizens, as well as how to better manage them, Borough Council commissioned a Parks and Recreation Management study in 2021.  The goal of this study was to make recommendations on how to improve our operation and management of our parks and recreations services, for the future, to include sufficient staffing needs, increased programming and to enhance the already positive relationship that exists between the volunteer Community Park Board and the Borough of Zelienople.  As a result of this study, it was recommended that the most efficient and effective way to administer Zelienople Community Park and recreation services, would be to transition the park into a fully operated Borough Park and Recreation system. This transition of the park began in January of 2022 with the creation of a new Borough Parks and Recreation Department. Dedicated borough staff and the Zelienople Community Park Board played a vital role in making this shift to a fully operational municipal park system.  This significant change could not happen without the valuable individual volunteer park board members who shared their knowledge, and experience of the park/ pool operations. 

We must also recognize all past board members and volunteers who dedicated countless hours creating; building; and maintaining our wonderful park over the past 80 years.  You have done an excellent job in looking to the future of the park and your legacy will continue to be an integral part of ensuring that the park remains a vibrant part of the community.

Thank you, the Zelienople Community Park is what is today because of your tireless efforts and vision for enhancing the beauty and experience of the Zelienople Community Park.
