Description of Programs

In addition to active recreation programs, the Parks & Recreation Department provides CPR/AED training to interested residents. CPR/AED machines are housed at both Pat Livezey Park and Laurel Park.  Baseball, soccer and basketball coaches are trained in their use.

Partnerships and volunteerism are part of Solebury's fabric.  Solebury Township Parks & Recreation partnered with a small energetic volunteer group known as TRACK 2002 as promoters and supporters of a grass roots community effort resulting in construction of a community sports facility, including a tract with an all-sport field, suitable for hockey, soccer and special events.  The newly constructed Sports Complex at the New Hope-Solebury High School campus is evidence of that intangible quality that characterizes Solebury's community.
